Today in Photographs: August 12, 1951 & 1952
Four portraits of people dealing with trouble, all pausing to pose for the requirements of a photographer. Patricia Moore, accused of murdering her doctor husband, holds the rosary she was never seen without. Dale Sillason, arrested for stealing an airplane, ignores a deputy to stare at the camera.
Above, cop with a clipboard pretends to fill out a report long after a motorist has died in an accident along the Cahuenga Pass. And Gilbert Hernandez listens to his options while jailed for a stabbing incident.
