Crippled Boy Resting Against Fire Alarm
Abstract:
Description: (Negative on file at Brown Bros., 220 West 42 Street, N.Y.C. Only Brown Bros. negative to be used.) Stamped Brown Bros. At first glance it looks like a fire hydrant the boy is leaning against, but it is an early fire alarm base with the fire alarm box removed. Note the initials NYPD entwined in the medallion to the left of the boy's head.
