From 1905 - 1916 the Metropolitan News Company was a major publisher and printer of view-cards in color, black & white, sepia, and with hand coloring in both halftones and in collotype. They captured views throughout the American Northeast but postcards of New England scenery were produced in greatest number. Many of their cards have a heavy look resembling early chromolithographs. They had a close relationship with Robbins Brothers for who they made many postcards. Their cards were printed in Germany. The name Metropolitan News & Publishing Company appears on some cards.
