The Rotograph Company, based in New York City, was a prominent publisher and printer of postcards from 1904 to 1911. Founded by Germans Arthur Schwarz and Ludwig Knackstedt, it served as the American branch of Neue Photographische Gesellschaft, renowned for its high-quality photographic products.

Many of their early cards were reprints of black and white or hand-colored National Art postcards and were printed without any letter prefixes. Some of these cards include the Sol Art Prints logo.

This card appears to be in Style E, a view that was printed as tinted halftones with a divided back.
