Aldrich painted extensively in Europe early on in his career and in later visits. In 1918, Aldrich arrived in Chicago and became involved with the South Bend, IN art scene during the 1920s. Aldrich travelled and painted widely in the 1920s, going both West to the Great Plains and east to various New England coastal locales. Aldrich exhibited regularly at the Art Institute of Chicago, and was a member of the Chicago Galleries Association, the Hoosier Salon, and the Chicago Society of Painters and Sculptors.

The following year, the City of Chicago purchased one of his large Gloucester, Massachusetts, harbour scenes for its municipal art collection.
