This is an original 1904 color print ad for Kalamazoo Stoves from the Kalamazoo Stove Company Manufacturers located in Kalamazoo Michigan. This company was one of the first ever company to deal directly with the costumers rather than dealing with a middleman. The company ran until the early 1950's when they began losing customers to gas and electrically powered stoves rather than their coal and wood burning models. They did however contribute the open window on the door. This allowed you to see inside while the oven was cooking.
