We live in times were there seems to be photographs of every aspect of life, but that didn’t use to be the case. Pictures used to be a way to convey a lot of information just with one photograph.

I know that was the case for me on some.
Cassius Clay at just 12 yrs old, 1954
A young Cassius Clay, later to be known as Muhammad Ali, poses for a picture at just 12 years old.
