All Out on Bail After Police Act Under Old Law," 10 May 1934: A2. The negative sleeve annotation relates this image to Jack Kearns, an American boxing manager. Kearns sponsored a controversial dance marathon (which he termed "walkathon" to get around ordinances) in Los Angeles in 1934. It was raided on May 9. Photograph of bystanders beside a police patrol car parked on a street. The car was probably assigned to collect dance marathon participants at Jack Kearns dance marathon (another photograph taken on the same occasion shows dance marathon participants walking toward the car, image ark no. 21198/zz002hbkqv). Text from negative sleeve: Kearns, Jack "Doc"
