Yeah, used to be an annual photomarket magazine. I don't know if its still published. It lists magazines and what they wanted to buy. It's probably a website now. But the old newsreel movie is a classic!

Yes, amazing how little has actually changed. Including statements like "...a business you can start as a hobby" or "...there are far more photographers than opportunities"....

which is why I always tell my students to persue their interests.
"You can do well in any topic when you want to".
Its all about what you want to.

Not the '40s, but I looked at stock in the late 70s early 80s with my old AE-1 Program. You had to shoot slide, print multiple copies, label them with what little info could be written on the edges, mount them in plastic sleeves and fed-ex them around the country. That's after shooting and processing.

Maybe not much has changed, but what gets done in a few minutes now took many hours back then, plus the expense of producing stock submissions.
