A dozen police subdue a demonstrator who tried to get away. The battle lines were drawn when Yippies and other demonstrators decided they would defy police attempts to oust them from Lincoln Park after the curfew hour. They built a barricade, but police flushed them out with clouds of tear gas. The demonstrators regrouped just west of Lincoln Park.

On verso: manuscript title and date, date stamps, newspaper stamps and newspaper captions affixed.

Ferrotyped prints have a sensitive surface, usually shiny and thinner, because they are put through a press while still wet. Ferrotyping makes the surface of the photograph smoother. Light does not scatter as much on a smoother surface, so this increases contrast. That makes ferrotyped images better for press photography.
