Description: Reverse reads "Code- F34; Class.- Industry; Ident.- Scene in Strobridge Lithographing Plant; Location- Cincinnati; Credit- Courtesy of Howard Jensen; Caption-; This photo must be returned to Ohio Writers' Project 78 E. Chestnut St. Columbus, O." This photograph depicts workers in the interior of the Strobridge lithographing plant in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Strobridge plant was founded by Elijah Middleton and at one time was one of America's most important lithography firms. They mostly produced circus, theater, and movie posters, but by the time of the Great Depression the company turned to movie posters, becoming one of the pioneers in that area of advertising. Strobridge was sold to the H.S. Crocker printing company in 1961 and 10 years later closed its doors. View on Ohio Memory.
