Type Tuesday - Cleveland Type Foundry

Today's Type Tuesday offers selections from the H.H. Thorp Manufacturing Company's Cleveland Type Foundry (c. 1890). Located on the corner of Ontario and St. Clair streets in Cleaveland, Ohio, the foundry offered their customers "only type of our own cast" and encouraged persusers of the catalog to pay "special attention to the artistic specimens of New Designs in original and ornamental faces, which are cast only by the Cleveland Type Foundry."
Featured here are some of the foundry's more ornamental selections.
