This photograph predates Erich Hartmann's membership of Magnum Photos and was taken while he was working as a freelance photographer in the city. In it, a slice of working class New York life is captured. A housewife is hard at work cleaning the worn hall steps of an apartment building and a gentleman perhaps readying himself for the day, walking stick propped against the stairwell, puts on his hat, ready for the day ahead
