LOVEJOY & FOSTER
Chicago, Illinois

Edward Lovejoy and Henry C. Foster made an extensive series of the Chicago Fire plus a series of the city in recovery after the fire (1871). "Rebuilt Chicago, 1872" showed the downtown nearly completely rebuilt and a beehive of activity. This series also included some fine interiors of businesses. They also issued a series of the Interstate Expositions in 1873 and 1874, including their booth selling views. Lovejoy and Foster were a major distributor of pirate views, especially by midwestern photographers, and their label appeared on many views they did not publish. They did offer non-Chicago subjects, including an especially fine series of Yellowstone National Park.

There seem to be two types of Lovejoy & Foster Yellowstone views. The orange mount set and the yellow mount set. The numbering and images are identical, from #300-#324 for a complete set of 25 views (not all views have been recorded). Some of the views contain hand-written titles rather than the reverse title stamp. Most, if not all of the Yellowstone images were originally photographed by Joshua Crissman.

The yellow mount views were no different than those with orange mounts. The series remained the same.
