BEWARE OF THE PIRATES,

5

even the Best !

 

In 1874 Edward Pearsall Best founded The Best Company. He was a former production employee of the famous Anthony Company. Best was solely specializing in the - flimsy quality - pirating of stereoviews from all over the world. He was against any discrimination: he pirated everything he could get his hands on!

Bunker Hill Monument in Boston

 

 

“The Attentive Scholar”

No title on this original Gem of German Life

 

 

“American Bald Eagle”. Proud but stuffed.

 

About 1880 Best joined forces with William Augustus Miller. He was a former street seller of “The Albany Courier”. And so M&B - Miller & Best was born. They build up quite an enterprise, with branches in Boston, New York City, New Haven and Newark.

 

 

These guys were smart! They perfectly understood the possibilities of using stereoview backsides for commercial advertising purposes. Here are some examples.
