The Fourth of July

[“Fourth Of July Celebrations Wantagh, Li”. Photograph by Leonard McCombe. Wantagh, New York. No date. From the Life Photo Archive.]

If I were the photographer, the description would read: “Youngsters engage in frenzied bidding war for meat, meat by-products.”

Happy Fourth of July.

I recognize the faces on those boys. Children are still the same today!

I’ve read something like that about school pictures — that from year to year, decade to decade, there are always-recognizable types.
