The collection of photographs as a whole documents violations of the Department of Sanitation's rules about the disposal of litter. This photograph is not dated, however, several of the other photographs were dated throughout the year 1980. This photograph documents and overflowing litter basket and other litter on the corner of Avenue A and another cross street (the adjacent street sign is cut off on the image) in Manhattan. The location is in downtown Manhattan. Presumably, the photograph was taken to document the litter that is violation of some Department of Sanitation rule regarding liiter and refuse in public litter baskets.A scan of a photograph documenting an overflowing litter basket on a Manhattan street corne
