The Knowing Eye: Photographs & Photobooks

Lancaster Cotton Mill c 1908
Lewis W Hine
Swann Sale 2474 Lot 46

Toronto. Daile Kaplan at Swann Auction Galleries in the Big Apple sent me an email a few days back announcing their latest auction, Sale 2474, called, The Knowing Eye: Photographs & Photobooks. The auction begins at 1:30pm on April 19th with previews on the 14th, 16th to 18th and the morning of the auction for a couple of hours from 10 to noon.

If you are in NYC next month, arrange your time to be at the auction and pick up some famous photographs and books for your collection – or to display in your living room! Illustrated here is a Lewis W Hine photograph of a child working in the Lancaster Cotton Mill of New England around 1908. The print was made about 1940 long after such dark practices were banned in America.

You can bid in person, online, or by telephone.
