From the always wondrous USC Digital Library:

On June 11, 1951 there was a shooting at a Van Nuys liquor store.
Wounded was Frank M. Bailey.

Barehanded are investigators and medical attendants who service the crime scene and the crime victim.

Outside the liquor store, a grinning cop crouches over a blood splattered sidewalk.

  1. Wow! I never knew that happened. My parents bought this store from Bailey in 1953. What a shock to come across this picture. I have a picture of me sitting on top of the sign that says “liquor, ice cold beer”. I must have been about 7 or 8 at the time.
