Series III: Company Facilities

Scope and Contents note

Series III consists of images of the employees at work and at leisure in the various buildings in use by the company. Photographs are arranged numerically by street number and alphabetically by place name, and thereunder alphabetically by caption. The series ends with unidentified locations. The work and recreation areas of two facilities are exceptionally well documented: the company headquarters on 102nd Street and the second garage on 132nd Street. Work scenes include views of the offices, assembly floor, machine shop, and repair pits. Scenes of recreation and leisure, which emphasize the benefits and amenities provided to employees by the company, include views of the barbershop, restaurant, tailor shop, and reading room.
