Wen I worked for the papers, I chose to work the night shift, we started at 15:30 and was to end at 24:00 but it rarely did. We came in around 21:30 to process film, write cutlines and do the LtR ID’s. The papers were all hot type then; nine dailies were printed so press runs started shortly after the photographers got their art to through the engraving shop. This pressman just left work after the last press run finished and stereos went back to the casting pots. I happened to come out the door at the right moment to make this photo.End of the shift, Getty Square, Yonkers, NY Nikon F 85mm f1.8 lens Plus-x film 125 ASA 01/05/1972
Initially I used Tri-x but soon went to Plus-x and found that by hand developing (the paper has a Versamat) I got excellent results under all conditions.
