    In those seventeen images, he captures a prodigious amount of early twentieth century urban life veneered with the decay of the 1800s juxtaposed with the infancy of the 20th century; particularly with the first image.

    I wonder if he ever found himself saying out loud, "...nah, this one sucks," about any one of those images. I mean, he couldn't have possibly thought that each of those images would make history.:cool:

    Thanks for sharing.
