Looking for the full version of a historical photo

I've been working on a research paper and I've been trying to find the full, high-resolution version of a 1936 photograph (that preferably extends beyond what is shown here). It made the front page news in London and shows the British Mandate riot police quelling Palestinian demonstrations.

Detroit historical tour of area where 1967 riot took place?

Over the last decade, I've heard many rumours of informative guided tours, of groups and individuals, BY groups and individuals, of the area destroyed during the 1967 riots in Detroit. I have always wanted to go, and am now trying to plan something with a friend the weekend of October 12th. The only solid lead I had, an elderly history buff and longtime Detroit resident who had given tours to family friends in the past, is no longer giving tours, and google doesn't list any tours with this particular theme. I am very much hoping someone here can help!

Social Media 0.01

I'm curious about military communication methods from before radio - how armies coordinated maneuvers and formations without it. I'm also curious which preradio communications methods would most be of use to modern protesters in urban settings should they be unable to use modern wireless devices. [more inside]

The Origin of London Riot Rumours

I am curious about the origins of a few of the London riot rumours. How did the highly unlikely rumour that the Blackberry Messenger was the communication channel of choice for rioters/looters get started? Also how did the false story that Duggan had shot at the police get started?
