National Youth Administration, State Office, 1 S. 4th St., Columbus, Ohio


A black and white National Youth Administration photograph of two African American males flattening out the metal on a scuplture. The man at the right is wearing coveralls and a hat, and has a hammer in his hand and appears to be straightening the metal on an oversized "5" sculpture. Another man is elevated to his right, and is wearing coveralls. He is holding the metal which is being flattened. To the right of them is a smaller "1" sculpture. On the back of the photograph is the stamp of the NYA. Mary McLeod Bethune was the Director of Negro Affairs for the NYA during the 1940s, and most likely acquired this photograph during her time as an NYA agent.


ca. 1940s
