(Original Caption) 2/1939-Ocean Park, CA- Wild hysteria that makes the modern jitterbug is captured in this photo of "Solid Senders Blowing Their Tops" at a jam session in the dawn at Ocean Park. Expressions on the faces of the "alligators" of spectators, are as remarkable as the actions of the dancers. This picture , by Paul Pangburn of Los Angeles Herald and Express, took a third prize in the annual Hearst Picture Contest.
