, arrested for being drunk, sits in the Lincoln Heights jail; below, William E. McReynolds,
who lived at 1149 Echo Park Avenue, shows off a gizmo that traps smog. In the right column we haveMiss Tramp Steamer of 1958
; the photographer's notes say of the L.A. Harbor event: "Miss Tramp [Steamer] presented skipper with a plaque for the ship and bussed him on arrival of maiden voyage". Right, below, the original 1958 caption read, "Fell From Tree: Model and actressShirley Houser
