The black-and-white photograph captures Jewish children, young boys of a yeshiva in the 1950s on a bus in New York City. Leonard Freed's photographic career led him to document many subjects from the period, including photographing the Jewish diaspora in the US, Europe, and the Middle East. Considered one of the important documentary photographers of the 20th Century, Freed was a master at photographic storytelling.

This gelatin silver, 16" x 20", signed (verso) by the photographer, is School Bus, New York City, from 1954.
