Rockport Granite Co. Advertising Booklet, c. 1895

This is an eight-page advertising brochure for Rockport Granite Company. It was engraved and printed by John A. Lowell & Co. of Boston. It is undated. I estimate its date to be around 1895. My reason for this is primarily because the back cover lists Charles S. Rogers as treasurer of the Rockport Granite Co. He became treasurer in 1892, so this was sometime after that. Interestingly, the cover image was used as early as 1883, when it was the cover for the Thanksgiving menu of a restaurant called The Arlington. Two of the images are taken from an 1885 issue of Harper’s Magazine.
