Shorpy: Potomac 1935

Potomac 1935

I can’t quite work out why I’m so interested by this photograph. It’s not great: the framing is fairly ordinary, and it seems very flat.

Perhaps it’s the look of concentration on the taxi driver’s face. It looks almost pained, and I can’t tell whether that’s because he’s been holding a pose for the photographer, or if it’s because he is waiting for a break in traffic that hasn’t arrived yet.
