Marsh, Reginald.  TWO GIRLS IN SUBWAY. S.58. Etching, 1928.

on cream-colored wove paper, with a watermark, upper left. Signed in pencil, lower right; signed and dated in the plate (this was part of the right side of the plate and does not appear in the fourth state. 7 x 10 5/8 inches, 178 x 270 mm., with a very narrow left margin, and wider margins on the other sides. There are some printing creases in the lower margin, but not within the image, else in excellent condition. This print is rare.

One of a few proofs of the third state (Sasowsky records two only), showing the man reading, to the right of the girls. The plate was subsequently cut in two by Marsh, and 8 impressions were taken of the left side (Sasowsky's fourth, final state), with the two girls (apparently none of the right side).
