This is a vintage image from an antique postcard of Harvey's Famous Restaurant (established 1858) in Washington, D.C. circa 1935. The restaurant no longer exists, but was at 1107 Connecticut Ave, NW, when this postcard was printed.
From the history of Harvey's on one of their menus:
Before the Capitol was completed...before the Washington Monument was even under way, Harvey's was known as THE place to eat in Washington. The genial, corpulent George Harvey opened his "Oyster Saloon and Restaurant" (Ladies invited) in premises that had been a blacksmith shop. He was truly a culinary genius and a host whose hospitality was unforgettable.
An image of the history of Harvey's, scanned from a vintage menu, can be found in the images section of this listing. It lists more of Harvey's history and some of the famous people who ate there.

All-Over Print (AOP) is a printing method that uses dye-sublimation to print a design onto polyester. During the dye sublimation process the dye is absorbed into the fabric. Since, it is not printed on the surface, like most t-shirts, it provides for a fantastic soft-to-the-touch feel and superior breathability.
AOP is a more time consuming method than screen printing or direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, so the prices are higher and the production times are longer, but the results are most definitely worth it.
Advantages of AOP:
The design won't peel off, unlike typical screen printing.
The design is part of the fabric of the item, so it will last as long as the item does.
The intensity of color is often unmatched.
Giclée (pronounced zhee-CLAY or often gee-CLAY) is a printing process that creates a museum quality, archival print. Special acid-free, paper is printed with fade resistant ink using a state-of-the-art, large format inkjet printer.
Gallery wrap is a style of displaying a canvas that doesn't show any visible staples or nails holding the fabric to the wooden stretcher bars. This style of canvas is intended to be hung unframed.
Mirrored edges (mirror wrap) is used to show the whole image on the main surface, rather than printing the edges of the image on the sides (image wrap) of the canvas frame. It is usually used when there is necessary detail on the edges of the image. Image wrap is used when the focal point of the image is in the center.
