Caldwell Printing Works
The business was founded in 1881 by Charles Caldwell son, of Elyton Land Company president Henry Caldwell. Charles' career as a printer had begun when he received a small Golding & Co. "Junior" 2"X3" press as a gift at age 13. He kept the small device in a glass globe in his office.
The press offered a broad range of printing and publishing services, including color reproductions, with a specialty in posters and showbills. In 1887 the printing department was supervised by J. D. McClintock and the bindery by Charles Patterson.
