Commentary
Both of these children need a home, but the black child's needs will not be answered as quickly as the white child's. Both are at the DePelchin Faith Home in Houston, Texas. For the first time, the home has enough black children to sound an all-out appeal for prospective black parents.

Marks
On verso: artist's credit stamp, manuscript title, date stamp and newspaper caption with date stamp 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.
