    Directed by Sumner McKane 2016 62 min
    Details
    Interviews and oral histories not only detail the history of the Eastern Illustrating and Publishing Co., and the "Golden Age of the Postcard", but also divulge stories from a quieter, simpler, yet stirring and enterprising time period. The audience hears first-hand accounts of smuggling during prohibition, of river drivers brawling for fun, of growing up without worry and without constant adult supervision, and of slop buckets spilling on tourists’ pies. These accounts are woven together amidst an exceptional backdrop of archived films and Eastern Illustrating’s exemplary imagery.
