Photos of the Real Bonnie and Clyde of the Notorious Barrow Gang Photographed by W.D. Jones, 1933
Bonnie and Clyde met in Texas in January, 1930. At the time, Bonnie was 19 and married to an imprisoned murderer; Clyde was 21 and unmarried.
Soon after, he was arrested for a burglary and sent to jail. He escaped, using a gun Bonnie had smuggled to him, was recaptured and was sent back to prison.
Clyde was paroled in February 1932, rejoined Bonnie, and resumed a life of crime.
In addition to the automobile theft charge, Bonnie and Clyde were suspects in other crimes in several states. At the time they were killed on 23 May 1934, they were believed to have committed 13 murders, kidnappings, several robberies and burglaries.
These pictures were from undeveloped film found at their Joplin, Missouri hideout taken by W.D. Jones, also a member of the Barrow Gang.
They left the hideout and many possessions behind after a shootout with the police, which resulted in the death of 2 police officers.
