In October 1941, FSA/OWI photographer Jack Delano found himself taking photographs at the Greene County Fair, spending the day capturing working-class families having a fun day out. Amongst the many fantastic shots he took was this kid chewing on a matchstick. Brilliantly composed. – Jordan J. Lloyd
