my dad wrote for a newspaper (cities used to have newspapers, and the newspapers used to have writers) and this was taken by a photographer on the newspaper.

incidentally (very) this is the same newspaper that was the only place to publish any of emily dickinson's poetry in her lifetime. she would have read this newspaper, but of course she never read my dad, because she was already dead.
