Squeezing in a ball game between tenements

This photo isn’t dated, and it doesn’t say where exactly in New York City it was taken. But it looks like spring, and these kids are determined to play.

The wagon on the right makes for nice stadium seats. I’m sure some of that laundry got whacked with the dirty ball though.

    I love the innocent, little toddlers in these pictures!

    This is one of my favorite images from Lewis Hine! His photos capture an era and a feel in American and New York history so perfectly.

    To see more of his photos–of immigrants, working children, construction of highrise buildings and more–check out the NYPL Digital Gallery:
