Barnhart Bros. & Spindler = The Great Western Type Foundry

Barnhart Bros. purchased the majority interest in 1869.

Freak was originally released by The Great Western Type Foundry in 1889.

According to Annenberg, Great Western became Barnhart Brothers & Spindler when the Barnhart brothers bought out the Toepfer family in 1868.The plant superintendent, Charles Spindler, became Secretary of the new firm. Specimen books as late as 1899 show the name Great Western alongside the BB&S name.

At some point, prior to 1925, Freak was renamed “Bamboo” by BB&S. It was delisted when BB&S was absorbed by ATF in 1929.

BB&S, "The project of producing a representative type catalog was stated in 1870, immediately after the purchase of the balance of the Toepfer interests, but the great Chicago fire of October 8, 1871 destroyed the entire plant and melted all the standing type forms. The only articles saved were some types mats that were moved from place to place before the advancing flames."

First type book 1873,... 1874,1880,1881,1883,1885,1888,1889,1892,1893,1893-9( Pony Spencimen),1895,1896,1900,1901,1901(Spanish),1905,1907,1913,1917,1922 & 1925.
