I feel that this is an extraordinary photo, full of deep detail with many stories. The narrative take place on the corner of 40th Street and 6th Avenue, Manhattan, in 1940.

In the image above the man reading the paper is just some guy reading a paper--with Zoomology he becomes what he was on that after in 1940: pissed off. The news was not good ("Nazi Army Now 75 Miles from Paris") and probably not all that imaginable, following the German victories in the rest of Europe its assault on the U.K. Though since he is reading the New York Daily News and he's on the back page, that means he is reading the sports, which is where his pissed-offedness might come from.
