Original Caption:

Oakland -- Handcuffed and chained to Sheriff Earl Hollen of Gibson County, Indiana, convicted mass killer Leslie (Mad Dog) Irvin begins his trip from Oakland to Princeton, Indiana and the Indiana prison death chamber. Keeping a close watch are Indiana State Police officers Sgt. W. W. Cornett, and Lt. Willard Walls. The party left by Southern Pacific train after an airline refused to seat Irvin, "out of deference to our other passengers." (1956)
