This is an original 1935 halftone print of giant soup kettles at the Campbell Soup Company in Camden, New Jersey. The company was founded in 1869 by Joseph A. Campbell, and currently sells its products in 120 countries. Each kettle was made of nickel in Austria, and could hold 100 gallons of soup. At the time, there were 75 kettles at the Camden plant, and 42 at the Chicago plant.

Photography by Margaret Bourke-White. Bourke-White was born in the Bronx, New York. Her interest in photography was propelled by her father's love of cameras, and her quest for self-improvement. Bourke-White became the first female war correspondent, and the first female photographer for Life magazine. She became the staff photographer and associate editor for Fortune from 1929 to 1935. During World War II, she took images in the combat zones, and was the only foreign photographer in Moscow when the German forces invaded; she was able to capture the ensuing battle. She is known for her images of Gandhi, and Mohammed Ali Jinnah. Her images portray amazing depth, and wonderful contrast, and can be seen in the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Modern At, the Library of Congress, and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
