Architectural Stationery Vignettes

The engraved stationary of established businesses from days gone by are works of art, as letters were such an important method of communication. It was common to feature a company's buildings front and center. BibliOdyssey has an assortment of these intricately engraved letterheads and sales receipts from the Biggert Collection at Columbia University, ranging from the mid-1800s to the 1930s. The stationery shown from James A. McCafferty & Sons manufacturing company of Brooklyn appears to contain all of their advertising plus their building in one image! See 30 more such engravings in the larger and easier to read full list of images. Link
