Aperture: 1944

May 1944. "New York. A small boy arriving at Greenwich House, where he is enrolled in a nursery school program, receives day care while his mother works." Another perspective on the door glimpsed earlier here. Photo by the wonderfully named Risdon Tillery for the Office of War Information. View full size.

Outside Lifts

Sometimes found in small stations, remember some from days in Louisiana. The composition of the overall shot reminds me of several scenes from 'The Searchers'; John Ford would have like it.

Open-air garage

Nowadays there’s a two-story building directly across the narrow street on the irregularly shaped corner lot, but the 1944 photo reveals some automotive activity including, curiously, what I take to be an open-air hydraulic lift.
