The NYT has a story about a trunk of junk bought at a yard sale in Kentucky that turned out to be full of correspondence and prints by Weegee, the (in)famous New York photog. One letter sent from Munich reads:
"Looks like the picture won’t be finished on time," the letter explains. "It rains every day and we can’t find 2 midgets, so it looks like I’ll be here at least 2 more weeks."
Still mysterious is how the trunk ended up in Kentucky in the first place.
