“Times” Reporter Retires After 34 Years at Police Headquarters

Weegee Daily, January 13, 2013

An early publication of Weegee’s words… (From December 1940 there was The Christmas Story, Ermine Wrapped Patrons… And of course Coney Island, in July)
The text is heavily edited, yet retains some of the Weegee charm: “(I’ve often wondered what a Times editorial writer looks like. Personally, I prefer Winchell. The Times editorials are all double talk to me.)”
