A photographic portrait taken by Paul Martin in 1898 of a little girl walking along a street. A little girl carries a large glass pop bottle. Her determined face is framed by a large round-brimmed hat. Paul Martin is regarded as a pioneer of photo journalism. In 1892 he bought a 'Facile' - a popular hand camera made by Fallowfield of London. With his camera disguised as a leather case, he was able to work unobserved, taking the candid photographs of daily life which are recognised as his greatest work.
