a hard lesson, a wet lesson

In the drink …
LIFE Feb. 1950

Toronto. In its February 20th issue for 1950, LIFE magazine posted this cheerful article about a photographer so busy capturing a shot of unfortunate skaters in London, England that he too broke through the pond ice.

We often think of photography as a low risk occupation. Not so for the war correspondent/photographer or the news photographer sent world wide to capture the news as it happens!

My thanks to Goldie of the website urbantoronto.ca for spotting this photograph and article and taking the time to email me.
