This is an image of a young African-American boy grinning while leaning against a building, the image mounted on a board signed by the photographer, Arthur S. Little. After googling the name I find that around the late 'teens and early twenties, there was a photographer in Los Angeles and Ventura by that name, though he does not seem to have had a high profile. I do not believe that this is an original photograph. The item is in good condition. The image itself measures 9 1/4" by 7", and the entire item as framed is 19 1/2" by 15 1/2" . It will make a fine acquisition for the collector of African-American memorabilia and ephemera.
