Looking at a barefoot kid like that

I wonder how many rusty nails and glass shards had been hiding in those mud roads.

Austin Newspaper

Like the Moonlight Towers, the Statesman is still Austin's daily newspaper, now known as the Austin American-Statesman.

Poor kid.

Being a barefoot newsie, even in South Texas, had to be tough. Hope he ended up having a good life.

The Replacement

In the event that Shorpy ever retires as the face of this website, I believe young Mr. Luna captures the spirit and could fill in nicely.

Well it's still better

than working in a Coal Mine, but then, what isn't.
