During this time, the Albertype Company produced and distributed over twenty-five thousand prints as postcards and viewbooks. The company used photographs by agents who would travel to cities and regions and negatives from other companies or photographers. The images were then reproduced as collotypes.

The Hotel DeSoto, also pictured, was completed in 1890, so the date must be later than 1891. Files contain image of cover and PDF of entire brochure.
