This infamous image appeared in Life Magazine purportedly showing the chaos in Hollister in 1947.
A Hollister local photobombed the staged scene in an effort to stop the misrepresentation taking place.
There was a bar right there, Johnny’s Bar. I think he came wandering out of that bar, and they just got him to sit down there. I told my wife, ‘That’s not right; they shouldn’t be doing that. Let’s stand behind them so they won’t take the picture.’ But he took a picture anyhow, this fellow did, he didn’t care.
