[Incident on a bridge]
Private collection of Jack and Beverly Wilgus
Description by Beverly Wilgus: " It is humorous scene that shows a photographer photographing a cart of street entertainers being pulled over the bridge. A blind man moving out of their way has bumped the photographer and knocked over the camera. The hapless photographer falls back with his head wrapped in his dark cloth. It is our understanding that it means that the photographer under the dark cloth is as blind as the sightless man."
