“One day I saw my pictures printed both in the Jewish Daily Forward and the Daily Worker." – in 1937

Two great blog posts from The Daily Worker Photographs Collection blog:

“One day I saw my pictures printed both in the Jewish Daily Forward and the Daily Worker. They had been sent out by the Hearst mat service. I rushed back to the Mirror office and asked if these were Hearst papers, too. I collected an additional five bucks for each… no argument.” Weegee by Weegee, p. 41

Slightly irrelevant:
“…New York University is tearing down all the old buildings and putting up more classrooms so they can teach Ceramics, Square Dancing, and primitive Painting a la Grandma Moses. (Where do they get all the money?) The old landmarks are going the way of all brick – threatening a severe shortage of cold water flats.
But there is a counter movement…to move N.Y.U. out to the Yucca Flats in the Arizona Desert so the soldier boys can practice dropping H-bombs. On the site of N.Y.U. will be erected cold water flats, the greatest blessing to modern civilization…”
Weegee, The Village, 1989
