'ONE OF THE HOMELESS WANDERING BOYS DRIFTING IN THE COUNTRY BEFORE CCC’
gelatin silver print, flush-mounted, titled and dated in ink, ‘34030-2’ and other notations in pencil, and with the photographer's '1163 Euclid Avenue Berkeley, California' stamp on the reverse, circa 1933 (Dorothea Lange: American Photographs, pl. 5)
8½ by 6⅝ in. (21.6 by 16.8 cm.)
This early print, with a semi-glossy surface is in overall excellent condition. There are some scuffs and faint linear impressions visible only upon close examination in raking light. There is insignificant, intermittent edge chipping.
The reverse is appropriately age-darkened and faintly soiled. There are hinge remnants in the upper corners. '34030-2' and '(SERA-Camp box)' are written in pencil and 'One of the Homeless Wandering Boys drifting in the country before CCC' is written in ink.
When viewed under ultraviolet light, this print does not appear to fluoresce. There is a Ginny Williams Collection label on the reverse of the mat.
