    Lizzie Borden's Jury of 1893: Mammoth Plate Photograph, image measures 16.50" x 11.75", in a period gilt frame 26.75" x 22.50". Lizzie Borden's jurors posed in this photograph, taken by O'Neil, New Bedford (Ma.) bottom right lower corner. These are the twelve jurors that were chosen of the 145 polled. They tried and acquitted her for the axe murders of her farther and step-mother in 1892 in Fall River, Massachusetts. Although Lizzie Borden was acquitted, she was widely believed to be guilty; no one else was ever arrested or tried for the murders. Borden died in 1927. These huge photos were reportedly distributed to the jurors and key trial participants, and of course, are quite rare. But the image itself is an iconic one, reproduced in many printed accounts of this bizarre affair.
