January 3, 1904, Chicago building commissioner
George Williams and Iroquois Theater owners
Davis (far right) and
Harry Powers (third from left)
were arrested and released after posting $10,000
William Pinkerton of the Pinkerton detective agency
(second from right) furnished the bond for Davis,
industrialist Charles Plamondon furnished the bond
for Powers and Andrew J. Graham, a banker, furnished
the bond for Williams.
identity is unknown of the two men at the table
writing, the man at far left and the person with
only a knee shown at far right. Plamondon, Williams
and Graham are possibilities but none of the three
men resemble Williams or Plamondon. I was not
able to find a photo of Graham.
location is a puzzle. It looks like a dining room
but who would host a bail bond posting in their
dining room and let in a newspaper photographer?
