Item no. 28274
Painting, 88th Street, NYC, c. 1952.
Another example of the tendency of photographers of the period to photograph workers engaged in dangerous jobs. Ms. Orkin is noted for the photographs of Central Park she took from her apartment window, but this clearly was not one of them.
Photograph by Ruth Orkin.
