Abstract:
Black and white photographic prints showing factories, office buildings, dealerships, branch houses, employees, tractors, farm implements, construction equipment, trucks, and a wide range of corporate activities of the International Harvester Company. Most of the photographs were taken for advertising, public relations, or engineering purposes. They were used in company publications, as source material for advertising literature, and to record engineering developments. The photos document manufacturing, engineering, public relations, advertising, labor relations, military or defense contracts, agriculture, farm labor, industrial labor, office labor, transportation, cities, towns, rural landscapes, small businesses, trucking, fairs, exhibits, and recreation. Also included are photographs of experimental tractors, farm implements, construction equipment, and engines. The photographs were originally mounted in bound volumes. The photos have been removed from the volumes and placed in boxes and folders. The original volume and page order has been retained however.
