The Albertype Company (1890 – 1952) was a Brooklyn, New York, based printer of postcards and views. It was founded by Adolph (1845-1938) and Herman L. Wittemann on the premise they could leverage technological innovation in the form of collotype, or albertype, to photomechanically reproduce images. Amassing photographic negatives of towns and cities across the United States, the Albertype Company produced over twenty-five thousand collotypes before its closure in 1952.
