“Joe McNamee, 13, a visitor from Las Vegas, was tossed into a pool on the east side of #Manhattan in July 1948. “A new batch of freckles appeared on Joe’s nose after the first few minutes at the pool,” @nytimes reported on what must have been a slow summer news day, “and a slight accident on the diving board put a few scratches on his back.” The story detailed Joe’s visit to the city. He stayed with the boys in the photo, two young New Yorkers who had won the Children’s Aid Society’s Good Sportsmanship Award. This photo, by the @nytimes photographer Neal Boenzi, was also published earlier this month on our @tumblr, The #LivelyMorgue. #tbt” By nytimes on Instagram.
