Lester Beall Poster: Radio

In the 1930s, much of rural America lacked electricity, power, and running water. The Rural Electrification Administration hired graphic designer Lester Beall to create a series of posters illustrating the benefits of electrification. These posters are from the first of three series, created in 1937. The original posters are held in the Lester Beall Archive, at RIT Cary Graphic Arts Collection.

Continuing the annual night-time "painting with light" photography project, Schoen Place, Pittsford New York was chosen to be RIT's Big Shot No. 24.

Referred to by some as the Eighth Wonder of the World, the canal was completed in 1825 and links the waters of Lake Erie in the west to the Hudson River. When constructed it included 18 aqueducts to carry the canal over ravines and rivers, and 83 locks, with a rise of 568 feet from the Hudson River to Lake Erie.
