There's much profit to be made here with the right investment of time, energy and authentication. To the best of our knowledge and expertise, numerous Type I examples are in the mix. Generally speaking, this is the kind of photo archive you want, where even the likely Type IIIs boast strong image clarity and where no image-embedded front captions are present. The collection hails from local sources like the Philadelphia Inquirer, Daily News and Evening Bulletin, as well as from the usual suspects of news-service distributors like Associated Press and International News. Copyright stampings, date stampings, paper captions, news-clipping captions and editorial notations appear throughout. Condition is typical for newsroom-used photos with moderate to heavy peripheral handling wear. The decade breakdown is as follows:


1920s-30 (9)

1940s (18)

1950s (64)

1960s (12)
