Christie's will auction The Diann G. and Thomas A. Mann Collection of Photographic Masterworks two weeks from now. The auction will take place on October 4th and 5th at 20 Rockefeller Center in New York City.
It's pretty much all "greatest hits." A few samplings:
Edward Weston, Nude, 1934. Estimate $30,000–60,000
Dorothea Lange, White Angel Bread Line, San Francisco, 1933.
Paul Strand, Blind Woman, New York, 1916. Estimate $70,000–100,000
Edward Weston, Pepper No. 30, 1930 (printed 1940).

Andrew John: "The estimated prices imply that some people have lots of pocket money. Are they happy? I'd love to hear the reaction to this auction of that poor man in the bread line."
Mike replies: Well, you and I can own every photograph in the collection for $40, and that makes me happy!
