Description

Label on negative envelope identifies photographer Dwight Ross: "Bombing on Piedmont Road at Otherside nightclub (a ladies club) There is only one photo which has identification by name. It is near the beginning of the roll with the two City of Atlanta Policemen at the left of the frame. Left to right, they are Ptl. B.K. Barlow; J.H. Brock. Next is a photo made from a small street (Rockledge Road N.E. in Atlanta) across Piedmont Road from the "Otherside" club. It is a wide lens shot Showing ATF (Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms) agents from the local office. None would give me their names; however, they did say they were talking to a man (visible on right side of frame) who wanted to know how to get his car which was parked on the other side of the yellow crime scene tape. He wouldn't give his name either. All other photos are of ATF agents in front of the club with the name of the club visible in a vertical shot made from same street, Rockbridge Rd. on the east side of Piedmont, across from club." Assignment sheet inside envelope: "The Other Side [sic] - 1924 Piedmont Rs. across from 'The Hot Spot,
