This is an original 1908 black and white print ad for the Iver Johnson Safety Automatic Revolver. The Iver Johnson's Arms and Cycle Works company was founded by Iver Johnson himself, who immigrated from Norway to Massachusetts during the height of the American Civil War, when fire arms were in high demand. At the time, Johnson came to the country as an already seasoned gunsmith. Iver Johnson's company not only survived the Great Depression, but thrived on it as burglary and other crimes were on the rise in the country. The company was further accelerated by the firearm demands of World War II. Iver Johnson firearms were used in the assassination of Presidential candidate and United States Senator Robert F. Kennedy and U.S. President William McKinley.
