    Nice illustration! First of all, we can identify the location of the riot: Berlin Alexanderplatz. The context: the Spartacist uprising and the murder of Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg.

    Here's what the New York Times has to say about the sanguinary incident:

    HEAR EICHHORN FLEES, DESERTED BY GUARDS; Tide Turned Against Spartacides When They Lost a Battle for the Foreign Office.
    LONDON, Jan. 10.--The elimination of Eichhorn, the Spartacide police chief, whose refusal to resign led to the present revolution in Berlin, may be an accomplished fact. A Zurich report received here says that he has fled from Berlin, while a report from Frankfort says that Herr Richler, a municipal councillor and a majority Socialist, has been appointed temporary head of the Berlin police.
