National Historical Wax Museum- The Prohibition Era

"The tableau shows a Chicago gangster killing typical of the Capone era. One gang member is shown being ambushed by the paid killer of a rival 'Mob'."

This shot of the killer shows the fierce savagery of the gangster era. Not any particular gangster, this man kills the other mobster as a message to another gang. His expression says it all, and the way his facial features highlight his rage, it's a good thing the prohibition era is long over.

Though not an innocent character, this man looks as if he is. In reality, he was probably some lackey who was expendable to his mob. Not that his death here won't garner another endless string of retaliation after retaliation.
