As you know we are in the business of licensing images for reproduction to the media. The cost of the license is based on various criteria such as size of image, placement, circulation and so forth. However, you are still in possession of this hi res image following its intended distribution. We suggest a secondary application, “wall art”.
In addition to personal use in your home, your place of business would greatly benefit, in my opinion, in the display of photographic images. I know that when I enter an office, a restaurant, a service station, a supermarket, a shoemaker, a printer, the phone company or any one of hundreds of other businesses I am drawn to photographs adorning the walls. DPI’s collection of historical images such as those presented herein provides an opportunity that should not be underestimated.
The lead photo in this blog is “Ft. Worth, Texas c.1909“. Note the right hand drive, the bald tires and the missing headlight. You have to wonder if the owner was cited for the broken headlight. Below we present “The Feed Truck“; Stanley, Wisconsin c.1924. This photo was taken outside the Hillside Factory. This dairy burned to the ground in 1925, and a new dairy, now specializing in cheese production operates today under a different name also in Stanley. If I were the owner of the current dairy I would be proud to display this image of the roots of my business.
