Communist Benjamin Saul being pulled from tree by police in Boston, 1931
Photograph. "595334.... watch your credit... International Newsreel photo, slug (saul) -- A tree his rostrum at red meeting until Boston police 'unperched' him. -- Boston, Mass.... Benjamin Saul was inspiring his fellow reds with some fiery oratory from this seemingly inaccessible 'speaker's stand' on Boston Common during the huge Communist mass meeting. However police managed to pull him from his perch and march him to jail when the 'party started getting rough.' A policeman was beaten before six were arrested. (E-Feb. 25-31)" -- typed note attached to verso.
