"I did these etchings from pen and ink drawings. In those days you would see people standing around doing nothing. I would sketch them all the time. Sometimes I would ask them to hold a pose and give them twenty-five or fifty cents. The man with his hands in front is warming his hands over the sidewalk grate." (Soyer, quoted in Gettings).
