Archive of 133 photographs from a custom automotive upholstery shop in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
N.p. N.p., 1960s-1980s. Archive of 133 vernacular photographs from an custom automotive upholstery shop, the "Auto Seat Cover Co.," located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, housed in acrylic photo sleeves in a photo album, circa 1961-1983.
The vast majority of the photographs in the archive appear to be from the 1970s, and are predominately before and after photographs, and ornate custom automotive upholstery in acrylic, cloth, and leather, of contemporaneous vehicles as well as vehicles from the 1930s - 1950s. Also in the archive are six photographs of the company's trade show booth, circa late 1960s, four photographs of the interior of the business, circa early to mid 1960s, as well as five photographs of the flooding of the business, likely the Harrisburg flood of 1972, and three photographs of a home upholstery job, circa early 1970s. Five black and white photographs, which appear to be the earliest photographs in the archive, all have the date of "Nov 61' stamped onto the margin, and six photographs, which appear to be the latest in the archive, have "Apr 1983" printed on the verso.
