Notes
Content : Figures depicted in image are labeled on border: "Jacob." "Charles Wyatt." "Hefeld (Firing from the Back of the Car)."

Content : Written on border: "March 1909"

Content : Printed on border: "One of the most remarkable features of the five-mile running fight between the Russian Anarchists who ran amok at Tottenham, the police, and the crowd of helpers, was the commandeering of an electric tram by the murderers, and the pursuit of it by the police on another tram. The driver got on to the top of the car, and the conductor, Charles Wyatt, was forced to drive in his stead by the man known as 'Jacob,' who held a pistol to his head. The other desperado fired on the car that brought police in pursuit from the back platform of the car." "Drawn by Cyrus Cuneo, from material supplied by Charles Wyatt, who drove the car."
