After selling the letterpress print shop, I am taking Railway Station Press in a new direction. It will be a publisher and distributor of select small press titles beginning with a reprint of the scarce “A Brief Autobiography of Henry M. Bradley” which was first printed in 1907. Henry Martin Bradley was my great great grandfather and lived from 1824 to 1918. This is currently a 30 day Kickstarter project to fund the actual printing.
He was born in western Massachusetts, helped his family clear the land and farm in northeastern Ohio, owned and worked for lumber companies in Bay City and Saginaw, Michigan, and prospected for iron ore in northern Minnesota. He finally settled in Duluth, Minnesota with many of his children and grandchildren (and that was where I was born).
Railway Station Press will continue to offer the Midway Midget playing cards and 1893 Chicago World’s Fair history cards as well as John Haines poetry broadsides (see blog posts below and Items For Sale page). My “Moving with the Frontier: The Bradley Family of America 1644 – 1918” published in 1977 is also available on the Items For Sale page.
My other website & blog, dedicated to the Bradley family and related families history and genealogy, can be found at www.BradleyHistory.com and my new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you.
