WELCOME TO LITTLE BOHEMIA




On April 22,1934 the FBI surrounded the Little Bohemia Lodge and opened fire after learning that the Dillinger gang were inside. Most of the gang escaped without firing a shot, with the exception of Baby Face Nelson. He was said to have exchanged shots with Agent Melvin Purvis. The FBI's reputation was dragged through the mud by newspapers across the states. FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover was outraged!





This photograph was shot on the 50th anniversity of Dillinger's escape from the Little Bohemia Lodge. The outlaws climbed from the second story window in picture above and jumped onto a snow bank much like the one shown. The outlaws then fled through the woods.



Agents Hollis and Sam Cowley closed in on Baby Face Nelson in Barrington, Illinois. Bullets tore through the radiator, Nelson made a sharp right turn and came to an abrupt halt. Agents Hollis and Cowley sped past, stopping to the left in above picture. Nelson's car is on the right.
