Children Dancing
#384 Unknown Photographer In testimony taken in 1905 in connection vith the Mayor's Push-Cart Commission,* Mr. Weinstein, a member of the Commission, asked Mr. Magidoff, City Editor of the Jewish Morning Journal: Mr. W. Which do you think is the more important, the health of the children and their comfort, or the push-cart industry? Mr. M. A great many accidents occur in the streets because childre n play there. Mr. W. Isn't it so, because the driver has trouble dodging the push-carts? Don't you remember about five years ago when the streets there [Lower East Side] were asphalted and the children played and used to dance there on the street? * "Report of the Mayor's Push-Cart Commission," City of Nev York, 1906, Appendix VTI, Testimony Taken at the Public Hearing, April 13, 1905, page 206. See also #2839. Note: This picture has "children dancing" written on the back but no further identifying information. It is, therefore, conjecture that it may have been taken in connection with the Push-Cart Commission Report.
