TAYLOR-YONKERS COMPANY. The company offered an engraving and advertising service good enough that, according to the Telegraph Herald, drew business from Chicago. The company served the advertiser by offering a production service that included layouts, pen and ink drawings, retouching, photographs, zinc etchings, halftone and color plates. Another feature of the company was the making of cuts from news pictures for quick publication.
