A rich, glowing impression with carefully-wiped plate tone printed on cream wove paper. Illustrated: Fine Prints of the Year, 1937. Ex-collection Patricia Lewis. Signed in pencl. Housed in an archival double mat and an 18 x 21-inch silver frame. $32,500.
The print was awarded an honorable mention by the Philadelphia Print Cub in 1938. It was included in the 1943 travelling exhibition, 'Artists for Victory'.
McCarron writes, "The sign on the smokestack at right reads 'Danbury and Bethel Fur Co. Inc.' Lewis depicted factory workers shuffling homeward at the end of the day. The subject may be seen as a contrasting companion piece to Quarter of Nine, Saturday's Children (No. 78) of 1929, where Lewis also used a single point perspective to show stylishly dressed New York City workers walking briskly on their way to work in early morning sunshine."
