View raw data

Peter I. Blauvelt started Blauvelt & Co. around 1869. Edward A. Blauvelt was sometimes a partner, though he appeared only intermittently in city directories. In June, 1872, Blauvelt & Co. advertised a position for a "First Class advertisement solicitor for the best fancy advertising medium ever put before the public; good for any class of advertisers; rates low and commission large." This was possibly reference to the production of stereoviews of a business, and printed with the firm's name and address, examples of which are in the New York Public Library collection. Such "fancy advertising" was not particularly uncommon.
