Stock Illustration Book
The illustrations came from a stock illustration book, produced in the 1950s by the Cobb Shinn Company of Indianapolis, USA.
In those pre-digital days printers or advertisers would browse the catalogue and if they saw an illustration they would like to use they would order a printing block from the company.
The file consists of 26 different images.
