7/28/1907 - Scene And Principal Actors In The Great Haywood Murder Trial In Idaho

Here is another article on the trial with an interesting composite photograph. I like the nice inset picture of Governor Steunenberg but it's the rest of the picture that is a bit unusual. Around a normal photograph of the jury, it looks like an artist drew the tables and bodies in the foreground and cut out photos of the the heads to place in the appropriate positions. Hopefully no one got mixed up such as an Orchard head ending up on a Haywood body. Interesting technique. Note the Independence Depot and Steunenberg house drawings up near the top on each side depicting the moment of the the respective explosions. Click on the pic to get a larger image.

I found this on Footnote.Com.
