Joe Munroe Archive
Description: Louis Bromfield's Malabar Farm was extensive and offered wide open spaces to play and explore for children. Two neighbor children are photographed enjoying a stroll down a dirt road on Malabar Farm, taken by Joe Munroe, 1947. Munroe's career began in 1939 at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He served in the Air Force during World War II and then joined Cincinnati-based Farm Quarterly magazine. Though raised in Detroit, agriculture became an important subject of Joe's photographs. He moved to California in 1955 and free-lanced, taking magazine assignments and selling his own work. View on Ohio Memory.
