This is an undated photo of the dining room at the Alexandria Hotel, site of a brief April 1920 fistfight between Louis B. Mayer and Charlie Chaplin.  Chaplin and Mayer reportedly at odds over Chaplin's divorce from Mildred Chaplin, under contract to Mayer at the time.  Chaplin's first meeting with Jackie Coogan, in the summer of 1919, also reportedly took place at the Alexandria Hotel.

This photo is great for two reasons: 1. It was taken at the Alexandria Hotel on April 24, 1960; and 2. The lady being honored at the podium was civil rights activist and publisher Charlotta Bass, thought to have been the first black woman to start a newspaper ("California Eagle") in the United States -- back in 1912! ~ USC Digital Archive (Bizarre Los Angeles)
