Supreme Court in Session

There are only two known photos in existence that show the US Supreme Court in session. Cameras have long been banned inside the courtroom, and the only two photos were captured by people who snuck cameras in.

Hoover and Lavel, 1931

Visiting the U.S. with Pierre Laval, Erich Salomon asked the permission of the Frenchman to take the pictures of Laval’s meeting with American President.
