Trouble Was His Business — Raymond Chandler

Oct. 22, 1961: Although this pictorial feature wasn’t specifically about Raymond Chandler, it uses a quote of his to describe Bunker Hill, which was vanishing.

"In the tall rooms, haggard landladies bicker with shifty tenants. On
the wide, cool front porches, reaching their cracked shoes into the sun
at staring at nothing, with the old men with faces like lost battles."


–"The High Window," 1941
