Unheeded Warning Sign on the NY&LB
Title:  Unheeded Warning Sign on the NY&LB
Description:  Anglers disregard the no trespassing sign on the Manasquan River trestle. Most of these people had moved from the other side of the bridge at the train's approach. This was my first published effort at photojournalism, when I was in the 12th grade. The picture was published by the Asbury Park Press, but I was so disappointed to see the words "Press Photo" instead of my own name for the credit. I did get a check for 10 dollars.
