One Month's Salary

As a teenager I worked in my grandmother's convenience store. Periodically people would pay with USD or very old bills. Over several years I was able to obtain a set of 1954 bills ($1-$20), and these three 1937 bills ($10-$50). The equivalent of an average month's salary for many in 1937.

 

Lit using Nikon CLS with an SB700 (camera left, 1/8) and SB900 (camera right; 1/64), both with reflectors.
