    I’ve often wondered who this guy was, if he managed to sell his car, and if he made it through the Great Depression.

    Wonder what this chap would think about the photo of his distress car sale becoming one of the most iconic images of the 1929 Crash? It appears on the cover of “Six Days in October” and is one of my favourite photos too.
