“You are bidding on a guaranteed authentic 4X5 original negative as shown- This negative is from the PM New York City Daily News between 1940 – 1948.”

Images and words, above, copied from ebay.

The seller will even sell you a print (8×10 – 24×36) of the negative, and for $35 send you a CD of the “Photoshopped” image “that you can use for your reproductions.”

And the photographer was?

“Weegee Tries His Hand with the Flickers.” Perhaps a slight variant image was published on February 1947…
