1929 Crime scene photograph from the famous St. Valentines Day Massacre in Chicago in which Al Capone rubbed out most of his competition in one day. The image shows six of the seven victims before being moved by the police exactly as they were found. Bullet holes and blood mark the brick walls and the blood of the victims likewise runs along the floor of the garage. One of the most important moments in American criminal history this, is right on the edge of being a "Vintage 1" s the event took place in 1929 and the International News stamp on the back dated from the early 1930's. It almost certainly fits within our five year window, but note PSA will probably call this a 1930's Type 2 under their system so please keep this in mind when bidding.
