Harvard: The Human Collection

Harvard University has many digital collections. One that is very interesting is called The Human Factor. The images “reveal the courage, industry and intelligence required of the American working man.”

Created in the years between world wars, the photographs in the collection depict the intersection between industry and art.

One of my favorites is this shot of radiator shells  circa 1937 at Pontiac Motors.
