From 1912-1930, Kraus Manufacturing Co. published both souvenir postcards and movie lobby cards. Generally their work consisted of half-tone lithography of lesser quality, i.e. cheaper to produce and sell. Their postcards featured freaks, vaudeville players, movie stars, and Broadway stage plays and actors.

Interestingly, Kraus was located at 220 W 42nd Street, New York, just two doors down from Hubert's Museum.
