This vintage advert for the Edward Mason Company (circa 1910?) at the southwest corner of Wabash and Delaware Streets shows a building that luckily still stands, now home to a “Southern” restaurant called Miguel’s. Elsewhere on the net, found an artistic “Birds Eye” rendering for sale, created by the Edward Mason Co. Even the IUPUI Library has this postcard of the Eli Lilly & Company Biological Library. Clearly, the Edward Mason Co. handled some big corporate accounts. The methods may have changed some, but there are still some awesome illustrators and artists out there. (I’m partial to Fraizer Designs and can’t imagine ever using anyone else; she’s the genius behind the HI Pajama Game poster among others.)
