Gift of Martha Guadalupe

Front side of card shows the words "Mi Pueblo" ("My Town") and "Phone Cards," incorporated into a graphic of a Mission-style arch with exposed adobe bricks and a church seen through the arch. The top of the card says, "Tarjeta con Pil�n" (Card with Bonus), "GRATIS" ("FREE"), and "Hable m�s...�Pague menos!" ("Talk more...Pay less!"). The price at the bottom, "$5 + $2 = $5" indicates that this card gives the user a bonus of $2 worth of talking time. The reverse gives instructions, written in Spanish, for using the card to make a phone call. A scratch-off area, which has been scratched off, exposes the PIN (personal identification number) used to place the phone call. A bar code is also present. The top and bottom edges of the card show perforations where the card was torn off of the hanger on which it was sold. Used by Martha Guadalupe, an employee of the Oakland Museum of California's restaurant, to make phone calls to her family in Mexico.
