Large 1929 vintage photograph from outside the auto repair shop on North Clark Street in Chicago showing the dead members of the Moran gang as they were being loaded into a car to be taken to the morgue. A spectacular event that would go down in history as the "St. Valentines Day Massacre," this is the only image we have ever seen showing the event from outside. A large vintage original in nice shape overall, this is the rarest image from the event we have ever seen and it is being offered here for the first time ever, fresh out of the archives of Underwood and Underwood. This is the only example of this photograph we have ever seen in twenty years and it will get a Type 1 from PSA.
