The 1910s were changing times for an emerging company. Motorcycle technology, photographic technology and the city of Milwaukee were all in transition, and a Harley-Davidson company photographer was there to capture it all. His images were used for several purposes; in company marketing campaigns, to showcase new motorcycles, and to document events. Even though these work-for-hire images had a practical purpose, the man behind the camera used an artistic eye and personal perspective to capture the company’s people and products.
