Series 2: Photographs, circa 1849-1985. 0.02 Linear feet in one folder.

Scope and Contents

This series contains several photographs released by Pfizer's Public Affairs Division. Though it is assumed that the majority of the photographs in this series were released circa 1985, they are in fact copies of earlier images dating from the period 1849 to 1960. Photographs portray exterior shots of Pfizer's locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan, interiors of the Brooklyn plant with employees at work, and one group shot of the Brooklyn plant's work force. There is also a copy image of Pfizer's company letterhead (as used in 1935), and one studio portrait of Charles Pfizer and his family, taken in Germany in 1870.
