Street scene of two young boys running a shoeshine stand where two policeman are their customers.

Two boys with a shoe-shine stand polish the boots and shoes of their favorite school-vacation customers: the casual, combat-helmeted, bull-shouldered legionnaires of the grim Prelate of Chicago--Mayor Richard J. Daley. Chicago, August 1968.

Title derived from Self-Portrait: U.S.A., p. 113.
