Inscription

on verso, by unknown hand, across top in graphite underlined: Hungary: Seym. Children; by unknown hand, upper left in red crayon: 68; upper left stamped in black ink: HISTORICAL CHILDREN; center, printed in black ink on label: EUROPE's CHILDREN/Hungary CHILDRENS' TOWN 4-511: children writing out their votes. Conditions for writing outdoors were difficult so every available facility-like this boy's back-was taken. The children were very serious, trying to keep the voting secret; the boys were mostly separate, the girls together in bunches, consulting each other about the candidates for office.; by unknown hand, center in black ink: 115-h; stamped in blue ink in a box: PLEASE CREDIT DAVID SEYMOUR-MAGNUM 55 WEST 8TH STREET NEW YORK 11, N.Y.
