Description


Section one of The Dallas Morning News newspaper from May 24, 1934, 12 pages, 17 x 22.75, featuring the banner headline: "Posse Kills Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker." Barrow and Parker are depicted below, as well as the "Leading Principals in Slaying of Outlaws"—Frank Hamer, Bob Alcorn, and Boots Hinton. Several articles detail the ambush laid by the posse on a rural road in Bienville Parish, Louisiana, which ended in a hail of gunfire that took the lives of Bonnie and Clyde. Subheads include: "Elusive Dallas Desperadoes Shot To Death in Louisiana," "Dallas Deputy Tells Of Ending Long Chase," "Failure Of Clyde To Pay For Guns' Delivery Is Fatal," and "Arcadia Sheriff Tells How Barrow Drove Into Trap." Interestingly, the paper also includes a piece on the sentencing of two of John Dillinger's associates. In fine condition, with uniform toning to the upper half of the front page. Accompanied by an 8 x 8 "Wanted" card headed "Division of Investigation, U.S. Department of Justice," featuring images of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, along with their descriptions and criminal record. From the collection of David Gainsborough-Roberts.
