Bud E. Brugh, President, Clyde W. Riley Advertising System, Publishers, Chicago Theatre Programs; Director, Paper Service Company.

This is an original 1923 black and white print of Bud E. Brugh, President of the Clyde W. Riley Advertising System.

Period Paper has obtained an unusual collection of prints with character sketches of Chicago movers and shakers from the 1920's. These men (yes, they are all male) were active in the business, industrial, and professional life of the city, and they are depicted here in a cartoon-style format with an illustrative and humorous verse by J. P. McEvoy. We have not seen a collection like this before. These are original 1923 prints, not current reproductions, copies, or digital prints. This collection is sure to be of interest to anyone researching their family history--perhaps you will find a family member here!
