Clarence Darrow
Los Angeles Times file photo

Clarence Darrow addresses the jury during his 1912 trial in Los Angeles on charges of attempting to bribe jurors while defending the McNamara brothers in the 1910 bombing of The Times. [Update: This photo was published in The Times on Aug. 15, 1912. An earlier version of the post said the photo was taken in 1913, the date that was written on the back of the picture].

Dear Daily Mirror readers: Posting will be light this week because I’m going through The Times archives at the Huntington Library to research a story for the centennial of the Oct. 1, 1910,  bombing. I’ll continue posting mystery photos, but it’s unclear whether I’ll have time to do anything more.
