This is a 1919 newspaper advertisement for American Radiators & Ideal Boilers made by the American Radiator Company, Chicago, Illinois.
--- John Pierce founded The Pierce Steam Heating Company and manufactured steam and hot water heating devices, including radiators. In 1892, Pierce merged independent manufacturers into the American Radiator Company. The success of the American Radiator Company is reflected today both in its historic home in New York City, the American Radiator Building of 1924 (now known as the American Standard Building), and even more so through its merger in 1929 with the Standard Sanitary Co. that created American Standard, Inc.
