I like this picture because of the oil derricks in the background, which I find to be quintessentially LA from the first half of the 20th century. The caption reads "Investigators (left to right): E.H. Kennedy, unidentified man, Lorin Q. Martin, and Ralph Simonds are inspecting the body of an unidentified woman found slain one block off Long Beach Blvd, Monday, May 12, 1947."
