Crowds Watching Police Searching Collyer Mansion

24 Mar 1947 — Original caption: Police enter hermits’ home…Even yesterday’s downpour didn’t keep curious crowds away from the mystery-filled Collyer home. Police were finally forced to clear Fifth Avenue from 128th to 129th Streets. The search continued cautiously on theory that Langley Collyer was hidden within, possibly armed to repel an invader. — Image by © Bettmann/CORBIS
