Title:

[Crescent City bank robbery portraits]

Abstract:

Portraits, some mug shot style, of law officers, district attorney, and presumably suspects involved in bank robbery. Some are posed in profile, and all are posed against a blank wall. Annotations on back identify some subjects as Sheriff Jack Breen, Undersheriff Ray Black, Deputy Sheriff Ray Plaisted, and Del Norte County District Attorney James Davis. Other men are not identified, but some are presumed to be alleged bank robbers. The bank was robbed of $16,000 by John Bott, Culbertson, and "Dopy" Morris, according to annotations on one photograph.
