One of the most famous images ever taken by a photographer and, yes, a true wire photograph. The first vintage specimen we have owned of this stirring Pulitzer Prize winning image, as indelible today as when it was taken in 1945. This print was produced 15 years after the original as stated on the paper caption on the back of this gloried original. AP image shows the American flag atop Mount Suribachi. Examiner stamp on verso. EX-MT. 7x9”.
This lot is from the legendary San Francisco Examiner Archive (SFXArchive).This is one largest collections ever of historic vintage photos spanning the entire 20th century. The San Francisco Examiner was the first paper acquired by William Randolph Hearst and itself was the subject of the film classic Citizen Kane. The majority of the photographs are fully identified, and back-stamped with dates. Included throughout this auction is a diverse mix of subjects including sports, historical, political, transportation, Hollywood, and all facets of entertainment.
