The colorized painting version of above photo. Al loved the photo so much that he had it enlarged, colored and framed.
It hung in the living room of his Miami home when this photo of it was taken by Mae's sister's relative during a visit.

Al Capone relaxing in the sun with his mom on the dock of his Florida Mansion 1946. Note the fishing pole on the table. Al wasn't  a babbling idiot in a bathrobe fishing in the pool. That was made up through time. He fished off the dock.  See and read Capone Myths

Al Capone seated bottom. Ralph Capone is standing third from left.
First guy left is William Frederich "Bill" Sell, who owned and ran the hunting resort in Winchester, Wisconsin, where Capone and his buddies would often go hunting. Mr. Sell was the first appointed forest ranger in the area and became Al Capone's friend as early as 1924 through the 1940's. Sell's wife, Lourene, was also a certified forest ranger. Their connections later helped the Capones buy land to build homes there. The others in this photo remain unidentified. They may be other hunters or friends of Mr. Sell at the same resort. Notice the man sitting next to Capone who seems to be real uncomfortable being there.
