Creation: 1932-01-02

This photograph of Clyde Barrow (1909-1934) cannot be confirmed though the writing on the back reads “Jan. 2, 1932 too much work- next time I will youse a tractor- bonnie is laughing at me- the sherrif cant shoot a dam- Clyde.” Bonnie Parker (1910-1934) enjoyed photography and took a number of photographs of Clyde and the gang. Undeveloped film was found at their hideout in Joplin, Missouri, in 1933 and given to The Joplin Globe which published the images, thus securing their fame as notorious criminals. Long before their dramatic deaths on May 23, 1934, the adventures of Bonnie and Clyde were staples of newspapers and news reels.
