Photographer

This picture was taken in about 1915, and shows a press photographer. It is interesting to note that he has a fairly compact camera for the day. It is hard for me to see exactly what type camera he is using, but it is definitely smaller than many in use back then.

  7. My sister is a newspaper reporter, and has been for 25 years.

    With all of the cutbacks in that industry, most reporters have to take their own photos these days.

    Anway, when I saw the photo, I thought of Clark Kent!!
