Rare 1934 photograph of John Dillinger posed at the Crown Point jail, taking time for a photo with Prosecuting Attorney Robert Estill. At the time Dillinger was facing certain death and it is no wonder he tried such a daring rescue that ended up actually working and leading to one of the most famous moments in American crime! Dillinger would use a wooden gun painted black to get the real guns and keys from the jails guard and get away to the astonishment of the American public, making him both a cultural icon and villain at the same time. One of the most iconic and breathtaking images in American "Crime and Punishment" . This photo is a restrike from the 1950's-1960's and it grades a perfect 10/10!
