A broadside is large sheet of paper printed on one side only. Historically, broadsides were posters, announcing events or proclamations, or simply advertisements.
Richard Potter broadside

The historical type of broadsides were ephemera, i.e. temporary documents created for a specific purpose and intended to be thrown away. They were one of the most common forms of printed material between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries, particularly in Britain, Ireland and North America. They were often advertisements, but could also be used for news information or proclamations.
