This is an original press photo. The Communists have again been caught doctoring a photograph for propaganda purposes. This picture in "The Worker," official newspaper of the U.S. Communist Party, is obviously a fake. A photographic analysis shows that both the plane and the coolie are in almost perfect focus, although they are obviously separated by considerable distance. At the same time, some bushes in bottom of picture are in very poor focus. Also, highlights on plane are along its topside, indicating that the sun was approximately overhead. But the shadow of the coolie's left arm lies straight across his hat at an angle which shows that the sun was fairly low in the sky to his left.Photo measures 10 x 8.25inches. Photo is dated 01-01-1962.
