Lot 957: 1949 High School Photograph with James Dean (13x20" framed)
Sizable and crystal-clear black and white shot was snapped in the shadow of the Capitol building during the senior class of Fairmount (IN) High School's trip to Washington D.C. The photo would be rather unremarkable if not for the rather bookish, bespectacled youngster standing eighth from the left in the back row. A few years later he would trade that basketball sweater and glasses for a leather jacket and a cigarette in a film called, "Rebel Without a Cause." That's right, it's James Dean! Large photo has some vertical creasing at bottom that does nothing to detract from the image itself.
