Where There’s Smoke There Must Be a Picture
1. When fire broke out yesterday in the top floor of Lerner Shops on 14th St., every paper in town rushed photographers to the scene. Our Weegee, seeking an angle, arranged this interesting shot of a rescue…
2. Weegee (above) got Ruth Flax to pose with the victim… (“When I was taking a Mail Order Course in Photography,” Weegee’s caption memo to us explained, “the ‘Professor’ always advised me to put human interest in my fire pictures.”)…
3. Things got more complicated…
4. P. S. The fire? It was a dud. But we covered it!
