This image of the main factory of the Sinclair & Valentine Company, manufacturers of lithographic and letter-press printing inks, appeared in their advertisement in The Graphic Arts and Crafts Year Book (1910), p. 379. Here is a link to a version of the entire ad.
From the Terry Engraving Company advertisement in The Graphic Arts and Crafts Year Book (1910), p. 3887. Note that this is an advertisement by a company which produced engravings for the printing trade. They are advertising their ability to produce fine engravings of machines; they are not selling machinery themselves. (The machine shown is, I believe, a steam-driven pump. It is done in what would now be called a halftone, not an engraving.)
This is the main building of the Keystone Type Foundry, from their advertisement in The Graphic Arts and Crafts Year Book (1910), p. 381. As a typefounder myself, I have an understandable fondness for typefoundries.
Here's the biggest typefoundry of them all. From their ad in The Graphic Arts and Crafts Year Book (1910), p. 376, this is the main factory of American Type Founders (the amalgamation of virtually all US typefoundries) at their height.
The link above is to a full-resolution version of this cropping from the ad. The rest of the ad is simply a list of their branch offices. Here's a link to a reduced-scale version of it .
