What Time Is It?

Seventy past zero.

Ironic

The Speed Graphic illustrated has the drop-bed feature deployed --- which the photographer apparently did not while using a wide angle lens.

The Photographer

He would be sitting in front of the Warren Williams apartment complex, which is a post-WWII subsidized housing project. The complex still stands today, even though Snow's is gone.

What's that in the foreground?

I can't get a clue.

[Looks a lot like the out-of-focus front end of a Speed Graphic, the most common 4x5 press camera. -tterrace]

Mostly Gone

Only the lefthand section of the building remains.

Chillun

I think the load the boys are hauling in their wagon is a large block of ice.
