Rare 1934 photograph of Gangster John Dillinger photographed with Frank Eyman at the famed Crown Point Jail. At the time this photo was taken, Dillinger was hoping for his release on the grounds of being a "Reputable Citizen of Tucson, Arizona". Dillinger, as we know, would escape from the Jail in Crown Point and ultimately be gunned down on the Streets of Chicago. Beautiful photograph issued by the International News and with a full paper caption on the back. The photo is exceptionally clear and bold with some creasing and a few pinholes from editorial use.
