Descriptive text accompanying the illustration reads as follows: “The above snapshot presents an interesting view of the wretched Czolgosz as he dejectedly peers through the bars of his prison cell. To the left of the picture the rigid figure of the grim jail guard may be seen. It is the refusal of these officials to hold converse with the unfortunate prisoner that does much toward driving him into a state of frenzy.”
