History: Detroit Publishing Company Photographs 1895-1924

"The Detroit Publishing Company was one of the major image publishers in the world. For nearly thirty years, 1895 to 1924, this company helped Americans understand the visual world. Always looking for new markets, the company created dozens of products -- prints, postcards, souvenirs, lantern slides, and advertisements. The company sent photographers to many parts of the world. They also bought negative files from other photographers. Traveling salesmen, mail order catalogues, and a few retail stores aggressively sold the company’s products." <>
