Chamber of Commerce of the United States photographs and videos

About this collection

The Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America formed in 1912 with the purpose of advising the government on issues facing industry and business throughout the country. The majority of images in this digital collection are photographs that were taken for the Chamber’s publication, Nation’s Business. Published from 1912 to 1999, the monthly magazine proved invaluable in communicating the Chamber’s messages to business and government, and the magazine featured images by many of the country’s most prominent photographers. This collection has not been digitized in its entirety. For a detailed description of the Chamber's Nation's Business photographs, click here to view the finding aid.

On verso: 'She's moving house and has reduced the problem of transportation to its simplest terms. Luggage, bedding, food, and a lamp, are balanced on her head. Baby is slung from her shoulder, and her pet dog is under her right arm.' Another typed caption reads, 'Simplicity of the East. Primitive but effective methods of doing things in India that contrast strikingly with those of the highly mechanised Western world. There are few things under the sun that cannot be done with simplicity, and in Asia, largely because so many people live near the starvation line, simplicity is the keynote of life; everything is reduced to its lowest common denominator, whereas in the West everything has tended to become more complicated as the machine age has increasingly tended to hold us in thrall. These pictures illustrate just a few of the countless instances of this simplicity which so captures the imagination of the European on his first visit to the Oriental lands.', [Description and dates], Hagley ID, Box/folder number, Chamber of Commerce of the United States photographs and audiovisual materials, Series II.
