    The Photography & the City label on the reverse of this photograph’s mount refers to the exhibition of that name held at the Arts and Industries building of the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D. C., in 1968. The exhibition was designed by Charles and Ray Eames and explored the co-development of photography, as an art and a science, and the urban environment. It combined historical images from the Smithsonian and the Library of Congress with work by 20th-century photographers including Lee Friedlander, Alfred Stieglitz, Berenice Abbott, Dorothea Lange and others.
