Detroit Publishing Co.


The Detroit Publishing Company held exclusive rights to Photocrom, a photograph processing technique that allowed the company to mass produce color postcards. The company was founded in the late 1800s by William A. Livingstone and photographer Edwin H. Husher, but did not call itself the Detroit Publishing Company until 1905. The company declared bankruptcy in 1924 and was liquidated in 1932.
