Joe Harty, news vendor, at Washington and Broadway, Portland

Full-length portrait of newsboy Joe Harty holding an armful of newspapers and looking at a flock of pigeons in the street in front of him. Harty, whose legs were amputated in a train accident when he was a child, is sitting on a board mounted on a roller skate. A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 14 of the Oregon Journal on Wednesday, October 22, 1919. The photograph had the following caption: “Joe Harty, Portland’s favorite newsboy, whose happy disposition at his stand at Washington and Broadway makes it a ‘sunshine corner.’ “ Accompanying the photograph was a brief column, “The Stroller Notices,” devoted to Harty’s good cheer. In an earlier story on April 13, 1920, Harty described how he had lost his legs and devised the board and roller skate that he used to get around.
