Landis and Alsop (fl. c. 1899 - 1934) were American view makers and postcard artists based in Newark, New Jersey in the latter part of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The firm was founded by Alfred S. Landis. Landis would often climb hills, trees, to the top of buildings, and even carried a small latter to get enough elevation to make his views. The second name in the firm, Alsop, is a bit of a mystery, but according to his surviving family members, he did have an apprentice, a New York State Trooper, who he intended would take over his business. This may or may not have been Alsop, but we think it unlikely, given that most of the 'Landis and Alsop' work is early in Landis' career. Landis died in 1860 having relocated to Florida to enjoy his retirement. Most of their work focused on these regions with known views of Morristown, Allentown, Atlantic City, Buffalo, Easton, Elmira, and Binghamton. Most of their views appeared between 1899 and 1902. Other non-cartographic work, including a significant corpus of postcards, was published until about 1920.
