Four More LIFE Photographers- Elisofon, Farbman, Grant And Hansen

Another busy day with four new photographers who continue the tradition of photographic excellence in LIFE magazine’s history- Eliot Elisofon, Nat Farbman, Allan Grant and Marie Hansen. We have everything from Hansen’s coverage of WAC’s to Grant’s photo essay of early American auto life on Highway 30. Highway 30 is part of the first trans-continental American highway, the Lincoln Highway. Today Highway 30 runs from Oregon to New Jersey. You can view many more of the route 30 photos here with a short essay and find the rest of the images from July 1948 starting here. Of course, a 2A figures into American’s earliest road trip impulses! Enjoy the day and come back tomorrow for more! PS. I also included a link to a Hemming’s article on the elliptical wheel ‘jeep’ in the Bernard Hoffman album that I added to yesterday. Click here to view the entire albums.
