Photoengraving (revisit the blog “Art Is Where You Find It) and photolithography were welcomed by newspaper journalism and by the publishing industry at the turn of the 20th century and were widely available by World War I.  Both are photo-mechanical processes used very successfully for reproducing illustrations. How nice to find a good example of photoengraving recently when Pam Boyd shared a 1914 copy of Rocky Mountain Views on the Rio Grande, the “Scenic Line of the World;” consisting of twenty-four quadric-colored engraved views from recent photographs, compiled by Wm. H. Crane.  Made exclusively for the Inter-State Company, Denver, Colorado. Leadville and Mount Massive
