Crowds line both sides of the street and gather in front of the old Los Angeles County Courthouse during the arraignment or trial of William Edward Hickman, confessed kidnapper and murderer of Marion Parker, age 12. Photographed in the vicinity of Broadway and Temple streets (current City Hall location). The Hall of Records stands on the left.
Detective Inspector Dwight Longuevan, seated on the witness stand with notebook in hand, photographed during judicial proceedings for William Edward Hickman, confessed kidnapper and murderer of 12-year-old Marion Parker.
Of note: Officer Lieuallen, along with police Chief Tom Gurdane (not in photo), captured Hickman in Echo, Oregon, after an 8-day manhunt. It is not clear whether this photo was taken during Hickman's post-extradition arraignment in December of 1927, or his trial in 1928.
Crowds of men and women, many wearing winter coats and hats, photographed outside what is probably a railroad depot. A number of people stand on a snow-covered embankment just above a walkway filled with crowds walking or standing near the structure on the left. The train on the right appears to be at a standstill.
