“The Juggler, Lower East Side, July 1940.”
Weegee’s World, p.51
“Joe McWilliams, fascist-type candidate of the American Destiny Party, running for Congressman, is shown juggling eggs on Rivington St. PM Photo by Weegee.” Weegee’s World, p.257
An article about the filming of the movie “Naked City” published in 1947, is probably more accurate.
Therefore, to solve a mystery that didn’t exist until about 15 minutes ago, we conclude that The Juggler photo is a photo of Vaudeville Juggler Bill Brown, from 1947…
And furthermore… if it’s true that Mark Hellinger left NY, in August 1947, after two months of “Naked City” filming, then, The Juggler was probably made in May, June, or July of 1947…
