First Riot Picture

Title

First Riot Picture

Description

Caption: Here is the first picture of the riot. it shows the first appliance of the torch to the negro section.

This appeared on page 9 of the 1921 June 1 Tulsa Tribune, although I'm not sure which edition. The City edition, which was the one microfilmed has replaced this with a cartoon Doings of the Duffs, "How was a man to know?"

Although the picture is unclear, due to the reproduction process, it should be possible to match the shadows and shapes to determine the actual image, should it still exist elsewhere.
