Elizabeth McCausland in her review of Stieglitz’s 1934 exhibition at An American Place identified this photograph: “[Stieglitz] observes man in his less idyllic activities and milieus, in crowded and sordid cities built of pasteboard, working in a skyscraper office, while the plaster cornices look far more flimsy and meretricious than a house built of cards ever could” (see “Photographs by Stieglitz Now at An American Place,” The Springfield Sunday Union and Republican, 16 December 1934, section E, 6).
