Rudolf Abel was charged with espionage, as a Soviet spy, in the summer of 1957. His trial took place in the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of New York in October of that same year.

In this image, we see Abel arriving outside the court house. His method of transportation was a patrol wagon which ferried him from prison to court.
