Fifty-five thousand years in San Quentin are represented by the combined sentences of the men in this picture, which shows 5500 of the California prison's 6000 inmates. Gatherings like this are rare, as they breed plots such as the desperate break executed yesterday by four convicts. This scene shows New Year's day festivities in the big penitentiary.

Photo measures 9 x 7 inches.

Photo is dated 1-17-1935.
