Because they drove an old hoopty and could not afford a color camera?

If the Southside was still like this I might actually be willing to venture there.

Have you seen the mortgage on the house he lived in? I think it is a few trillion now.

Plus it looks like he has to hold some kind of a sparkler in his teeth so that people will toss him coins.

Why? I think kids should just dress like kids. That means t-shirst jeans and sneakers. Kids that age don't need to be wearing dress shirts and ties unless for special occasions.

I'll wager they were all dressed for church. It was probably the best clothes they owned,
and they all look fantastic. So good to see.

No, but I'm going to guess that it's inversely proportional to the price of ammunition.

Wouldn't it be awesome to locate these guys today and get their thoughts on this photo. It's possible they are still alive.

Last time I was on the train in the south side, three kids that were doppelgangers of those in the picture walked on the train and started singing a capella. Along with being the only white person on the train, it really felt like the Twilight Zone.
