Lost Angeles

The brilliant Muscato points us to a collection of photos from the L.A. Times Herald that the Los Angeles Public Library has posted on their website at http://www.lapl.org/virgal/

My fave? Not the photo, but rather the caption (or "cutline" as they say) below.

Almost “life-sized shoes” of police officer John M. Yates, who kicked Herald-Express photographer Eddie Phillips in the groin after Phillips took photograph of camera shy officer. A witness stated that the shoes “were the largest thing [I] ever saw that didn't have a liver in it.”

Oh yeah.
