This is for what, vagrancy? Doesn't look like drunk in public. Wasn't the type to be arrested for protesting, was he?

This is not a booking photo. It's a photo for his induction in the Merchant Marine. There are similar shots floating around for Paul Newman and John Coltrane for when they enlisted in the Navy. I'm 99.99% certain of this, as I did copious research on the Newman shot.

agree with Unknown, especially with this scale in the background.
