The Standard Scenic Company produced a very high quality, curved, regular-sized mount of landscapes, animals, scenics and other United States genre during the first decade of the twentieth century. Yet, even with this distinction, their views are quite scarce today. Evidently their print runs were much lower than other companies of the day. The company’s view numbers reach as high as 1713, indicating the release of thousands of views. There is also some evidence that this company had a direct relationship with the Whiting Brothers of Cincinnati.
Among the subjects covered by the Standard Scenic Company was Yellowstone National Park. There are probably at least a dozen views in existence although only two have been recorded to date. Both views are of identical styles indicating the likelihood of only one print run.
