Annals of Crime #88

Original Caption:

Dedham -- Photo shows the riot squad of the Boston Police department guarding the Norfolk County courthouse at Dedham, Massachusetts, Saturday, during the hearing of a motion for a new trial for Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, the two Italian Communists found guilty last June of first degree murder, in connection with the shooting to death of a factory paymaster and guard robbed of $18,000. This case caused the attempt to bomb the American embassy in Paris last week, and Communist demonstrations all over Europe and South America. (1921)
