Beginning in the 1930s, the power of photography was harnessed to document and promote U.S. Steel to the American public. This exhibit chronicles an illustrative case study in the use of photography to galvanize public opinion.

Documents and objects from HBS Special Collections are displayed in eight cases organized by theme. Exhibits in two adjacent vestibules interpret industrial photography as advertisement and art.
