    Jack Ward Color Service Inc. was a Manhattan business offering photo processing and related services from 1955 to 2012. This undated piece of packaging uses a grotesque with enlarged lowercase forms for ‘a’, ‘e’, ‘m’, ‘n’ and ‘r’. There used to be an unicase version of Folio, see this post about the Landmark Center sign. The ‘R’ is not a match, though.

      In 1965 I very briefly delivered for Jack Ward Color Photography, as a bike messenger, and got my bike stolen, shame.

      hard work, not for me..

      Ah fond memories..
