TAUNTON DAILY GAZETTE, Mass., March 3, 1934
* Outlaw John Dillinger
* Famous wooden gun escape (1st report)
* Crown Point, Indiana jail
Along the last column of the front page is a one column heading: "DILLINGER GOT OUT OF JAIL AT CROWN POINT" with subhead. See images for text here. This was one of the more famous events in the notorious career of outlaw John Dillinger, escaping from jail with a fake gun.
Ten pages, loose along the spine, light toning and wear (chipping) at the margins, must be handled with care.
