1936 Jesse Owens Wire Photo

1936 Jesse Owens Wire Photo

New York City is no stranger to throwing ticker tape parades. From Pershing to Lindbergh to Neil Armstrong, the Big Apple has welcomed home all our returning American heroes. But perhaps no one was more deserving of a parade than one Jesse Owens who in 1936 destroyed Hitler’s myth of Aryan supremacy by winning triple gold in the Berlin Summer Olympics. Offered here is an absolutely fabulous image of Jesse Owens coming down Broadway to the cheers of a grateful nation. Think about it. In 1936, before Joe Louis and way before Jackie Robinson, a black man is the toast of America. The image measures 8 x 10 and is NM-Mint condition with brilliant contrast, clarity and stunning composition.
