Milton Bradley

albanyschools.pngThere’s no real Albany connection to the Milton Bradley Company, well-known game-makers of Springfield, Mass., but in 1894 they took out an ad in a book celebrating Albany public schools. It was a lovely bit of typography. Obviously, they made more than games, and Milton Bradley himself was a strong advocate of the kindergarten movement, and was himself a kindergarten teacher. Although he left to focus on teaching, the company moved into producing equipment for kindergarten, thus the ad we see here.
