(Original Caption) 9/25/1935-New York, NY: Joe Louis, the ‘Brown Bomber’ of Detroit, shown walking along a Harlem street with his bride, the former Marva Trotter of Chicago whom he married a few hours before Joe knocked out Max Baer of California. As the result of his victory last night, and the one over Primo Carnera early this summer, Joe is the idol of New York’s Harlem. Joe and his bride left New York for Pompton Lakes, scene of the fighter’s training activities. Later they will return to Joe’s home city of Detroit.
