1931 Composite photograph of the biggest names of the gangster era showing the men who were at the top at the time and those who had been recently murdered, wondering who was next. The top includes Al Capone, Bugs Moran, Jack Diamond, Owen Madden, Jack McGurn and Dutch Schultz as members of the living while the bottom shows images of the deaths of Frankie Yale, Pandola's Finale, Joe the Boss and Joe Hamley. Probably the greatest image of the entire gangster era we have ever seen, issued by the international News and stamped on the back with a full paper caption.
