1933 colorized large format advertising transparency from the Elliott Service Company featuring an inset image of New York Giants pitcher Carl Hubbell. The Elliott Service Company, established in New York City in 1913, was a subscription photographic and pictorial news service agency that provided images for window displays and advertising purposes. The service supplied large format photographs of people, places and events of current news interest, which were sent to its subscribers several times a week. This large format transparency with Hubbell is an aerial picture (“striking airplane view”) showing New York’s fabled Polo Grounds during Game 1 of the ‘33 World Series, a contest in which Hubbell struck out 10 batters on his way to recording a complete game victory over the visiting Washington Senators. The transparency measures 11” wide by 14” high and remains in VG condition.
