Bonnie and Clyde's Guns For Auction

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 26 July 2012

They were the most notorious and romanticised gangster couple in American History: Bonnie and Clyde. Between 1932 and 1934 they crisscrossed the American South on a crime spree that included kidnapping, robberies and murder. Their fame grew with every new victim. They were criminals and they were in love. It all ended in a hail of bullets on a dusty road in Louisiana when a possee of Texas Rangers finally tracked them down. Now the guns Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow had with them the day they died are up for auction.
