In the late nineteenth century, printers developed a lithograph method that produced brightly colored posters. Manufacturers quickly adopted the new poster style to advertise their products. The Royal Milling Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota and Great Falls, Montana, had this advertising poster made in the early 1900s. They chose the Ben-Hur brand name because the story was a popular theatrical drama.
