Ephemera and Other Materials

Description

This series consists of thirteen boxes of material including loose mounted and unmounted photographs, unbound photo album pages, detail drawings, blueprints, advertisements, trade catalogs, clippings, and photomechanical prints. Many of the items relate to or depict items manufactured by A. H. Davenport Co., Irving and Casson, or their successor Irving and Casson - A. H. Davenport Co. A number of other items, however, do not relate to the firms or their work but presumably were kept as a reference or design resource. The record for each box includes a listing of identified customers where applicable.
