The company was founded as the Detroit Photographic Company 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. It promotes a new color printing process in the United States And to capitalize
on the public's interest in sending inexpensive pictorial greetings. In 1905 the firm became the
Detroit Publishing Company, continuing to use the trade name "Phostint" for its patented color
reproduction process.

Photochrom is a technique developed in Zürich, Switzerland, which allows the color
enhancement of black-and white photography with the means of chromolithography. It allowed
the company to mass-produce photorealistic color motifs long before color photography became
economically feasible. The company specialized on postcards of American And European
subjects, including cityscapes, reproductions of artwork, natural landmarks And folklore. The
Detroit Publishing Company was one of the largest American publishers of postcards And
photographic views during the early decades of the 20th century.


By the time of World War I, the company faced declining sales both due to the war economy And
the competition from cheaper, more advanced printing methods. The company declared
bankruptcy in 1924 And was liquidated in 1932.
