Bonnie and Clyde outlaw duo killed...
Item # 556145
May 23, 1934
THE BELLINGHAM HERALD, Washington, May 23, 1934 Through the many years in this business, very rarely do we come across the report of Bonnie and Clyde's death with a nice displayable front page headline.
Mostly these reports are a few columns at most and sometimes not even on the front page. This famous duo became more popular after their deaths making this issue very special.
Here is a 10 page newspaper with a very nice banner headline on the front page: "Barrow, Bonnie Parker Slain" with subheads: "CRIME CAREER OF OUTLAWS ENDED" "Southwest's Desperado No. 1 and Cigar-Smoking Gunwoman Companion, Killed" "Officers Spring Trap" "Speeding Auto Splintered With Bullets in Louisiana".
Also on page 9 are one column headlines: "SHOOTING DESCRIBED" "'We Just Shot the Devil Out of Them,' Officers Say"
Other news of the day with some front page reporting on John Dillinger as well.
Light browning, otherwise in good condition.
