Historical Image of the Day

Rally to save Sacco and Vanzetti, the two Italian anarchists executed by the state of Massachusetts in 1927, theoretically for murder, but really for anarchism. There was no evidence tying them to the killings and the judge openly referred to them as "bastards." I don't have a specific date for this photo, but it's clearly in the 1920s.
