  33. 33. The Detroit Photographic Company was founded in the 1890s by Detroit businessman and publisher William A. Livingstone, Jr., and photographer and photo-publisher Edwin H. Husher. The company had the exclusive rights to the photochrom process for the American market. Photochrom is a technique which allows the color enhancement of black-and white photography with the means of chromolithography. The company specialized on postcards of American and European subjects, including cityscapes, reproductions of artwork, natural landmarks and folklore. The company went out of business in 1924 Most of the existing negatives and prints are now housed by the United States Library of Congress. A large collection of photographic and photomechanical prints are also housed by the Beinecke library at Yale University The Archives and Special Collections at Amherst College holds a collection of photochrom images of American landmarks from 1898 to 1908 – The next slide is an example of the Detroit photographic Co. Chromolithography allowed the company to mass-produce photorealistic color motifs long before color photography became economically feasible
