Caption: "Haymarket Square is noted the world over as the scene of the anarchistic outrage on the night of May 4, 1886, when a bomb was hurled into the midst of a number of policemen who were attempting to disperse a disorderly crowd. In the center of the square stands a statue of a policeman with uplifted hand, erected to the memory of the officers who perished that night. This location was formerly a hay market, but in recent years has become a great produce market. In the early morning it is one of the busiest centers in Chicago.
