1927 Photograph of crowds gathering outside the courthouse in Jamaica, New York for the trial of the murdering woman Ruth Snyder. She would ultimately be executed and a newspaper man would sneak a camera into the courthouse snapping what has gone down in history as one of the most famous photographs ever taken! The offered street scene here is beautiful with a full paper caption on the back.
