1934 Famous photograph of Public Enemy Number One John Dillinger as he poses with his jailers in Crown Point after he was captured. He was brash and unrepentant when he was captured and it actually endeared him to the public, so when he escaped, it was one of the most important moments of the depression era. While this photo is a re-strike, it dates to about the 1950's making still within the window for a "vintage 3".
