Detroit Photographic Company's Views of North America, ca. 1897-1924
Children of Chinatown, Los Angeles, Cal (1909, photographic print). From Detroit Photographic Company's Views of North America, ca. 1897-1924. "...The Detroit Photographic Company began as a photographic publishing firm in the late 1890s. The founders, Detroit businessman and publisher William A. Livingston, Jr., and photographer and publisher Edwin H. Husher, obtained the exclusive rights to use the Swiss color photolithography or 'photochrom' process. This process permitted the mass production of color postcards, prints, and albums for sale to the American market."
