JACK JOHNSON POSING NEXT TO A CAR IN FRONT OF THE ARCHER-MANN MOTOR COMPANY, 4057 LINDELL.Horizontal, black and white photograph showing Jack Johnson posing next to a car in front of the Archer-Mann Motor Company at 4057 Lindell. He is shown leaning against the car and smiling with a cigar in his mouth. Cars can be seen on display through the large showroom windows in the background. Johnson was the first African American to hold the world heavy-weight boxing championship, and he held the title from 1908-1915. The job file includes a photocopied brief biographical article about Johnson from an unidentified book.

I generally avoid accident photos - it did not take much for someone to die in plenty of them, though this 1931 Cadillac 370 V-12  was not badly damaged and is unusual.
