McKane Film/Music Series: The Northeast By Eastern
The Northeast By Eastern - film, history and live music combine to illustrate a way of life from a simpler, more patient, yet enterprising American era. Film & Music by Sumner McKane. Live Music by Sumner McKane & Josh Robbins.

For years, Belfast, Maine-based Eastern Illustrating and Publishing Company sent traveling photographer-salesmen on the roads all over New England and beyond with cameras, catalogues, and order books, seeking buyers and markets for their unique real photo postcards.

The Northeast by Eastern combines Eastern Illustrating and Publishing Companys comprehensive collection of early 20th century photographs with archival film footage, interviews, oral histories, a musical soundtrack featuring period music, as well as an original score by Sumner McKane. Combined, these stories and images illustrate an era unlike any other in American history. Interviews and oral histories not only detail the history of the Eastern Illustrating and Publishing Co., and the postcard craze of the early 1900s; but also divulge stories from a quieter, simpler, yet stirring and enterprising time period. The audience hears first-hand accounts of smuggling during prohibition, of river drivers brawling for fun, of growing up without worry and without constant adult supervision, and of slop buckets spilling on tourists pies. These accounts are woven together amidst an exceptional backdrop of archived films and Eastern Illustratings work.
