Description
Five-year old Lee Blackbern is too young to be a salesmen, but when it come to selling bonds he is an expert. At a bond rally at Victory House in Pershing Square, little Lee generated so much enthusiasm and displayed such super-salesmanship that he stole the whole show. The youngster is shown asking his enthusiastic audience to buy more war bonds while the master of ceremonies pulls him back to the center of the stage. Photo dated: December 8, 1944.
