Salem Refreshes Naturally
22 February 1973 | St. Louis, Missouri
B/W Gelatin Silver Print | H: 6.75/17 W: 10/25 (in/cm)

The bold use of the imperative was at work in the urban context. This sign was sited over railroad tracks in downtown St. Louis, and seemed to hang in midair. The artist was particularly excited by the duck landing in this context. Consciousness of the deleterious affect of cigarette smoking had just begun to take hold.
