This is a beautiful and decorative architectural billhead from the city of Pueblo. It is assumed Mr. E.M. Brown lived in Troy NY, but owned properties in Colorado, although that is unknown. We searched for "Gladstone Park" in both places to no avail. Any help or correction is appreciated, email Debra here.

This old signed billhead was printed by the "Franklin Press Company, Pueblo Colorado." It was found in Genesee County NY.  A beautiful old original typography piece with a great graphic portrait of a wonderful old 19th c. Pueblo building. 

Size 5.25 by 8 inches.

I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both.
