St. Valentines Day Massacre Photo Clark Street Garage #1 BANNED ON EBAY - B-G21-B330
Here we have an 8x10 photo of the scene discovered by the Chicago Police Department on Valentines Day, 1929 after six members of George 'Bugs' Moran's gang were lined up against the wall of the garage at 2122 N. Clark Street, in Chicago, and summarily executed. Also killed was a mechanic who happened to be working that day. Allowed to live was "Highball", a dog, the killers not desiring to cause undue outrage from the good citizens of Chicago. Killed that day were:
James Clark (AKA Albert Kachellek)
John May (mechanic)
Al Capone's assassins had made an easy entry by disguising themselves as Chicago Police, becoming part of Chicago's legendary, prohibition era, folklore. The crime remains unsolved.
This event sealed Al Capones role as the undisputed boss of Chicago's underworld, as well as sealed his fate as a target of the Federal Government. Many historians consider this to be the final straw leading to the abolition of prohibition.
We have an additional photo, from another angle, of this grisly scene so many years ago. Be sure to take a look!
Of course, being historically significant, this fine photo is BANNED ON EBAY.... no comment.
