Grand Rapids Engraving Co. Ads


The ad boasts that the engraving company can translate illustrations or make ‘cuts’ for catalogs, books, souvenirs, newspapers, letterheads and more. 

What is unusual about this ad is that it features a photograph of a Black boy in a magazine that is not specifically produced by and for the Black community. 

This ad was found at the back of Inland Printer, v.17 (1896:Apr.-Sept.)
