Sorry boss - no photo

Sorry boss – no photo

Aug. 23, 1954: Los Angeles Mirror photographer George Lacks portrays his frustration after narcotics suspect huddled under blanket on right refused to come out and have his picture taken at the Central Police Station.

Los Angeles Times staff photographer Don Cormier did get this photo.

This photo was not published in the Los Angeles Times but later was published in the October 1954 issue of Among Ourselves, a publication for employees of Time-Mirror.

I’ve added this photo to the Photojournalist on the job photo gallery.
