1931 photo of state troopers and National Guardsmen with police holding off a mob at the courthouse,

Lynch Law on Huron St.

In 1931, a mob threatened to avenge a quadruple murder.

From the January, 2017 issue

This 1931 Ann Arbor lynch mob photo --"iconic," if ever there was an "iconic" photo of an Ann Arbor historical event--has suddenly turned up for sale on eBay, posted on a "Buy it Now" page, priced at $53.00. Unseen by local eyes for eighty-three years, it would be a pity if it were lost to us now.
