This image depicts Leopold and Loeb together with the prosecutors (who would soon seek the death penalty against them) at the time of their confession to the crimes of kidnapping and murdering Bobby Franks.

 Note the wall calendar on the upper-left side of the picture. It shows the month of May.

This picture was taken by an employee of the Chicago Daily News whose reporters were actively engaged in investigating the kidnapping and death of Bobby Franks. The Chicago Historical Society tells us more about it:

State's Attorney Robert E. Crowe, Richard Loeb, and Nathan Leopold, Jr.

"Full-length group portrait of State's Attorney Robert E. Crowe, Richard Loeb, and Nathan Leopold, Jr., sitting in a room in Chicago, Illinois, surrounded by a group of men who are sitting and standing.

Text on image reads: Confessing to State's Atty. Crowe. Nathan Leopold, Jr. and Richard Loeb were both sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Bobby Franks."
