Rare 1934 photograph of Gangster John Dillinger photographed 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. One of the best vintage Dillinger images that you will find, this is a close up of a similar image we have sold in the past.
