Vintage Chicago Crime

A very interesting photo gallery of notorious Chicago criminals and crime scenes, courtesy of the Chicago Tribune. Pictured above is John Dillinger sitting in a Crown Point, Indiana courtroom in February of 1934. A few weeks later, on March 3rd, he would escape jail using a fake gun.

Lots of old images to look through, and many of them are surprisingly clear for the age.

Kind of funny that I learned about these photographs (which live on a website) via Twitter. The specific technologies may change, but images still captivate us.
