American Terra Cotta Company Architecture Brochure Original 1935 Wall Block For Sale
YOU ARE offerDING ON: Original Brochure from
American Terra Cotta Company on American Wall Block from 1930 to 1940
This is a professional brochure
provided to architects. This brochure provides general and detailed information
that a architect would need to design and specify the product. Original stand
alone brochures (not cut out of catalog books) are increasingly difficult to
find and very unusual to find in this condition. Typically after an architect
retired or closed his business, this original source material was thrown out.
Yet it is this original source material that was used by architects to create
the designs of the age. What makes this piece unique is that this piece came
from the American Terra Cotta and Ceramic Company factory in Crystal Lake, Ill.
It was from a select number of original brochures that were never used.
AGE: Piece is undated. Best estimate
is that this brochure was probably made 1930 to 1945. On the cover is a picture
of the interior of the Indianapolis Union Station by McLahan & Becker

be considered new - old stock. This was a brochure that came from the American
Terra Cotta and Ceramic Company factory in Crystal Lake IL in the early 1970s.

the company. Because this brochure is
probably about seventy years old, there is the normal yellowing expected on the
is 12 pages: 11 pages printed with the back cover left blank. Exterior is a
card stock similar to a file folder. Interior pages are a glossy stock.
Brochure was designed to be like a file folder to fit into an architect’s
product literature files. Overall size is 9 3/8”x11 ¾” with the interior size
being 8 ½ x 11. Original pages were printed double size, folded and stapled.
