Since we offered a wire photo of Ayn Rand from 1947, we had a small collection of Rand photos that were offered to us. While not as rare as the 1947 photo many of the archive photos from newspapers disappeared long ago. But we are able to offer several.
The first is an original press photo from 1975 from The Christian Science Monitor. The back of the photo has a press clipping of an article on Rand by Jo Ann Levine. Stamps on the back of the photo indicate that it was run the Monitor on January 26, 1975 and then again, Jan. 26, 1979, Aug. 20, 1979 and finally on March 17, 1982, which would have been a photo used for an article after her death. This photo is processed for use in newspapers and doesn't look quite like regularly photos, as it is "screened" for printing.
The photo is 5"x9." This photo will be shipped by Priority Mail insured and not shipped with any other items you might purchase, in order to protect it from damage. Rand photos remain among the harder collectibles to find. Many of these original photos are only in the market now because newspapers are closing physical archives. $95.95.
