    Description

    The St. Valentine's Day Massacre (Chicago Police, 1930s). Historical Photo (8" X 10"). Crime.
    This is a vintage gelatin silver, double weight, matte finish photo. It's an early print of the famous police photo from 14 February 1929 in Chicago. This was one of the bloodiest days in the history of gang warfare. On this day, four members of the Al Capone gang trapped seven members of the rival "Bugs" Moran gang in a Chicago warehouse. Capone's gang, dressed as policemen, ordered the Moran gang to put their hands on the wall. The Moran gang complied without resistance, thinking it a mere routine pat-down. Capone's men than pulled sawed off shotguns and sub-machine guns and shot all seven men to death in the back. An unrestored photo with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, pinhole, or minor toning. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Very Fine-.
