SHOESHINE BOY

New Yorker Teddy's summer earning money as a shoeshine boy focusses on good will and ingenuity as byroads to better business and makes Teddy into a very real boy. Thwarted at first from setting up on populated corners, Teddy finds a site at the corner market near his home where he shines childrens' shoes, has a profitable summer and is able next year to go back with the bigger shoeshine boys in front of the Public Library. Louis Darling's two tone drawings are full of light and have a certain photographic quality that make you think they have just happened.
