Weegee poster - Crowd at Coney Island, 1940 (ref 11)
A2 (594mm x 420mm)
Weegee stood on the life-guard stand to attract the crowd’s attention.
‘And this is Coney Island on a quiet Sunday afternoon…a crowd of over a MILLION is usual and attracts no attention (I wonder who counts them)...and it only costs a nickel to get there from any usual part of the city, and undressing is permitted on the beach…Some come to bathe, but others come to watch the girls.’
