Large c. 1919 photograph of boxing superstar Jack Johnson sparring with Marty Cutler outdoors in front of a largely segregated crowd of both black and white spectators. A clear and bold original, this is crystal clear and bold with handling wear at the edges from over one hundred years of news-room storage being the only flaws. This is an image we have never seen before and it presents beautifully, especially with the social implications of the crowd behind the fighters.
