Amazing Photo of Young Paper Boy on Pennsylvania Avenue

Sunday. 7 yr. old news-boy, without a badge, who tried to "short-change" me when he sold me a paper. "He can rustle de poipers"another boy said. William Parralla, 313 Second St., S.W.

What an incredible photograph this is. It shows a little 7-year-old newsboy trying to sell newspapers. The caption listed at the Library of Congress is also amusing. The photo was taken in April 1912, the same month as the Titanic’s sinking.
