Holographic notes on cover: [pencil] 3 carribbean | island | [ink] foto [pencil] rondolay. Below that in ink: Hunter Foods | Hoboken, N.J.
A small octagonal notepad leaf was staple over this text with holographic ink text running in several directions. See image 1.

None of the images are in Hoboken. All appear to be from the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico (San Juan), St. Croix and St. Thomas. Photos are of managers, buildings, interiors, trucks and the related parts of their operations including the interior of supermarkets in their region.

One photograph from the bottom left of the second leaf has holographic ink text on the reverse that gives instructions on what kinds of pictures were required. See images 2 and 3. The purpose of this documentation is not given. Other photographs were not removed, but when viewed on their page with transmitted light, some could be seen to have holographic text on their reverse or relevant text on the paper on which they were mounted.
