Vintage Photos Of Depression Era Gangsters And The Lawmen Who Gave Chase

People who chose to live the gangster life during the early 20th century were cut from a rougher yet more refined cloth than the gangsters of today, and they always looked dapper no matter what they were doing.

The rackets were numerous, the risks immeasurable, but these outlaws chose to make a buck bruising, smuggling, shooting, stealing and strongarming knowing full well it might cost them their lives.

Looking back on these photos of Depression era mobsters you can see a sort of haunted look in their eyes, the only clue to their remaining humanity revealed in the one place they can't rebuild in stone.
