Mug Shots

From The Smoking Gun website, some interesting mug shots.

Lewis Powell
Lewis Powell (aka Payne), one of the men who conspired with John Wilkes Booth to murder President Abraham Lincoln. []

Sure, he's a New York gangster and labor racketeer, but don't you just want to hug Basil "Bobby Cherry" Cervone? Maybe even pinch those rosy little cheeks? []

Machine Gun Kelly

George "Machine Gun" Kelly, the notorious racketeer who gave FBI agents the nickname G-men, was photographed by Tennessee cops in September 1933 after his arrest for kidnapping a wealthy Oklahoma oil man. Found guilty of that crime, Kelly was sentenced to life in prison, where he died of a heart attack in July 1954. []
