When I worked for the papers, I asked for and got the second shift (1530 to 2230 hours). In the summer most of the work was in daylight, since we usually finished the last assignment around 20 hours and were in the photo bureau by 21 hours. The best times came in autumn and Winter with the short days. That’s when one had the chance to work around the magic of light produced by store windows, street lamps and car lights.
This elderly gentleman dressed in top coat and hat was mesmerized by the model trains in the store window. Whether he was looking for a gift for a grandchild or reminiscing of days long gone by isn’t known. I watched him for several minutes.Mamaroneck Ave. White Plains, NY 11/30/1973
