From the Corbis website:
“Policeman Looking at a Body
Original caption: No Christmas Deliveries for Him. New York, New York: Slumped on the sidewalk under a mailbox is the partially covered body of Lewis Sandano, of Prince Street, who was shot and killed in front of the Madonna di Lorito Roman Catholic Church by Detective Fyffe as he fled with an overcoat which he had filched from a parked automobile. Standing over him is policeman George Luzzi who is recording a grim pre-Christmas drama.”
