Estes and Lauriat Advertising Cover

Here is an excellent advertising cover. On the left of this long envelope is a picture of the Estes and Lauriat building in Boston. This 299-301 address refers to its address on Washington Street in Boston where it was situated between 1876 and 1898.

In 1898 Dana Estes and Company succeeded this firm.

Estes and Lauriat published quite a number of fairly well known series including the Zigzag Series by Butterworth, the Knockabout Series by Frederick Ober and the Three Vassar Girls Series among others. As time goes by I will review their various series.
