Inscription: Inscribed in pencil on print, subsequently erased, verso C: "Ra 8091A"
Photo Technique, (late 1940s); Mrs. Broward, (an editor's daughter); Bill Tomlonson, (a collector); Pace/MacGill
This photograph was made while Evans was under Federal contract to the Resettlement (later the Farm Security) Administration. The verso inscription is the Resettlement Administration (RA) file number assigned to this 8x10" negative. The inscription indicates that the print is an early RA/FSA print not made by Evans. The negative dates from March [?] 1936 before Evans' collaboration with James Agee in Alabama on what would later become Let Us Now Praise Famous Men. Photo Technique merged with American Photography magazine in the late 1940s.
