New Orleans Fruit Vendor- 1950s
In a box of largely uninteresting slides was this gem.
The pacakge was marked “1950s, French Quarter, LA,” and although the rest of the photos were of the river and whatnot, this appears to be a side street in the Central Business District.
The slide was in rough shape, washed out and badly scratched. I cleaned it up as much as I could, but I would have loved to have been able to bring out the expressions. Cropped closer all the people seem ghostlike, with no facial features visible at all.
