A shaft of light? A tractor beam? Probably didn’t matter to this young guy who surrenders with one hand and smokes with the other.
His back is against the brick wall. His shirt is AWOL. But his expression is coy, almost come-hither. All we know for sure is the date of the photo: June 1936.
2 1/2” x 3 1/2” gloss print dated June 1936. Good condition overall with black photo album paper on verso.
