Below: Below are a variety of photos from print advertising showing the variety of capabilities of the Heider. The D with the plow is perhaps the most used image in the Heider library, appearing in numerous ads across the world.

Below: A small advertising book of nearly forty pages titled “The Verdict” from 1918 provides the single largest collection of photos anywhere, unfortunately, due to the small size some of these photos are less than clear. Many of the photos above are also included in this book with captions.
