Weegee, Investigator, (who looks like & is Weegee) at Manhattan Police Hdqs, looks over fragments of broken glass, & metal from scene of bombings, for clues, in 2 bombings at German Consulate Bldg, & Daily Worker, note piece of wood, from German Consulate Bldg bombing, June 1940

Except for the stripes on the tie going in the opposite direction, that’s a pretty close match… Fellig playing and/or posing as investigator/detective…
