Commentary
In August 1963, members of the Congress on Racial Equality (CORE) joined with local parents and children to block installation of mobile classrooms, known as Willis Wagons at 73rd and Lowe in Chicago, because there was already adequate classroom space in four predominantly-white schools nearby.

Marks
On verso: manuscript title and typewritten label with title and date affixed.

Materials
Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
