This trio offers a great behind-the-scenes look at newsroom photo-department practices during the Depression Era. Ranging from 3-1/2 x 8" to 7x6, each photo has been trimmed for publication purposes, shows heavy usage wear and boasts strong image quality. They appear to be career-spanning with a late-1920s fielding pose (heavy background masking/crop marks/editorial highlights), an early-1930s dugout shot, and a late-1930s dugout shot. Two of the three display caption notations on the reverse.
