Jack Johnson Leavenworth Photo (4.5

Jack Johnson Leavenworth Photo (4.5"x6.5")

Still a huge draw, even while imprisoned, Johnson is seen here amongst a crowd of on-lookers and surrounded by the walls of Leavenworth. Convicted of transporting a minor across state lines for immoral purposes, even though the teenaged white woman was Johnson's wife, the pair would flee to Canada. Finally in 1920, after years of living in exile, Johnson surrendered to federal authorities and was sentenced to eight months in prison. "Jack Johnson At Levenworth Prison" is written in the top left corner of the b&w image that displays light creasing, one small spot (1/8") and discoloration to the lower right corner. The reverse, penned "J.Johnson, Levensworth" in black ink, shows paper loss due to past mounting. VG.
