Negro boy near Cincinnati, Ohio (early 1940s)

I originally posted this public domain photo on December 30, 2005. It’s one I really like and, going back over the photo archives, I thought I would bring it forward and re-post it.

    December 31st, 2005 at 5:59 pm The little guy has such a sad and serious look on his face… I wonder what he was thinking and going through.

    But on the quality of the image, very nicely enhanced. That is amazing!!
