A few years ago here in the big, flat city I tried to take the kids sledding in hilly Elmwood Cemetery but the security guard pulled up behind us and gave me the stinkeye so I chickened out. Next time I'm bringing a copy of this picture. 

Photo from the Burton Historical Collection at the University of Michigan, via The Night Train.

Nearly all of these urchins were discovered in the photography archives of the Library of Congress (and available without copyright restrictions online). Otherwise, urchin photos will be credited to the appropriate photographer with a link to its source (unless they come from my own collection of photographs from unknown photographers). If there is ever a copyright concern, do not hesitate to contact me.
