Curtis, Cyrus, 1916, Business Profile

CURTIS PUBLISHING COMPANY: The largest and most splendidly housed publishing plant in the world occupies the entire block bounded by Sixth, Seventh, Walnut and Sansom Streets. It is constructed of white marble and brick, and is an enduring monument to the genius and energy of Cyrus H. K. Curtis. The Curtis publications, The Ladies' Home Journal, the Saturday Evening Post and the Country Gentleman, are read in every English speaking country. Visitors to this vast publishing hive are always welcome, a staff of guides being especially employed to show them through the various departments. Thirty-five thousand persons availed themselves of this privilege in 1915. The Maxfield Parrish panels and his famous decorative work the "Dream Garden," done in Favrile glass by Louis Tiffany, are splendid features of adornment. Another notable feature is the large collection of Franklin imprints.
