The little adventurer boy

August 4, 2008

This kid looks pretty happy posing with a fishing net and his catch against a backdrop of the high seas. The photo studio is DeYoungs’ at 845 Broadway, but the year it was taken is a mystery.

As is the kid. He wears nice clothes; I love his little suit with the giant tie and knickers that lace up the side. But where did he live, and what did he amount to? I wonder what his life was like.
