WARNING VERY GRAPHIC!
(This confirms that there is no glory in being a gangster).
Frank "Salvatore "Capone
April 2,1924 Obituary for Frank Capone who was killed April 1st
Oftenly mistaken as a Valentine's day massacre victim filled with thompson submachine gun holes, this is actually non massacre related gangster victim filled with shotgun pellets.
(Special thanks to Mr. Bill Helmer)
Commonly mistaken as Hymie Weiss, this is in fact Patrick"Paddy" Murray who was accompanying Hymie Weiss.The latter died enroute to Henrotin Hospital.
Valentine's day 1929
Louis Alterie 1935
Unione Siciliana's Michael Merlo's 1924 funeral (Merlo died of cancer).
With the many killings going on during the Prohibitionary gang wars, it's no wonder Al Capone had specially armoured vehicles to protect him. ALSO SEE JOE BERGL. Here below is a view of one of these famous Cadillacs.
Here are photos sent in to us by Mike Tona, whilst visiting the Cars of the Greats Niagara Falls museum.
Al Capone's 1928 armoured Cadillac on display at Niagara falls museum, Canada 1973.

As if anyone could resist, Mike went in the Cadillac and took some shots, much to the dismay of the staff there. Good job Mike!
