A page from Coffeetoons: The Exciting Story of the Standard Coffee Company Told in Cartoons, 1945

Over the course of his career, Chase was commissioned to write several cartoon histories of New Orleans businesses. This one, from 1945, tells the story of the Standard Coffee Company; another, from 1967, does the same for the department store D.H. Holmes. Neither book stops with the history of the companies themselves; instead, Chase told their stories in relation to the larger history of the city itself.
