This Featured Photo was captured in 1965 while doing a self-assignment on a day in Chicago. I left Minnesota on a midnight train to Chicago and arrived with the morning commuters. I took photographs for 10 hours and then caught the 5 p.m. train back to Minnesota. This is one of the 100 scenes I captured that day.
There are two things going on here. One individual is picking scrap boxes on an ironed wheel cart while the man in the white shirt, briefcase in hand, is heading towards work. I wonder how that same alley would look today.
