These splendid images are in very good condition and would look magnificent framed. The collection was published by The West Virginia Paper Company or Westvaco which was was established in 1888 by William Luke along the Potomac River in what is now known as Luke, Maryland. In January 2002 Westvaco merged with the Mead Corporation to form MeadWestvaco.
