1934 Photograph of the lifeless body of gangster John Dillinger as it had just been loaded into a car for transport to the morgue, complete with blood soaked shirt from bullet holes. While we have seen restrikes of this image in the past, this is the only original example from the Chicago Bureau of the International News we have ever handled. An important piece of gangster history, this is a high grade 10/10 that ranks among the finest images of Dillinger that exists!
