Jimi Hendrix was arrested at Toronto International Airport in
May 1969 after customs inspectors found heroin and hashish
in his luggage. Hendrix, who claimed the drugs were slipped
into his bag by a fan without his knowledge, was later
acquitted of the charges.


Arthur Fellig was born in 1899 in Austria, emigrating with his family
to Manhattan’s Lower East Side in 1909.
By the late 1940s Weegee
had emerged as a national celebrity and
enjoyed that status.
His spirit and interests changed. He explored
distortion lenses, the
polaroid process, and produced photo-caricatures
of famous people,
going on to win occasional, highly paid assignments,
and travelling
widely until his death in New York in 1968.
