I, too, am looking for some information about a picture that was my grandmother's, titled-"Bringing Home Papa". I knew this company had to be located in Chicago somewhere because my grandmother did her shopping there for her home located in Hudson, Illinois. My print is from 1906. If you know anything about the co. or where I can get info, let me know.
