During the summer season, Eastern Illustrating & Publishing employed several photographers who traveled through rural New England and New York, focusing their lenses on locally known landmarks, street scenes, country stores and businesses, events and people.
The company vehicles were easy to spot by their large
equipment trunk on the back that prominently depicted the company name.
