National Youth Administration
A black and white photograph of Lou Costello, center, addressing a group of NYA members and spectators at an unknown location. He is wearing a three-button suit and is apparently making a speech. Around him stand NYA members in coveralls. Costello is standing next to a machine, purpose unknown. This photo was taken by the National Youth Administration, of which Mary McLeod Bethune was the Director of Negro Affairs. She most likely acquired this photograph during her time as an agent for the NYA. On the back of the photograph is written, "NY-12." The photographer of the image is unknown.
