Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

Chicago’s most famous mob boss spent eight months at Eastern State in 1929-1930. Arrested for carrying a concealed, deadly weapon, this was Capone’s first prison sentence. His time in Eastern State was spent in relative luxury. His cell on the Park Avenue Block had fine furniture, oriental rugs, and a cabinet radio. (Information from the Eastern State Penitentiary website.)

    Gaaa ha ha… I want to be arrested now! Was the food good?

  • I doubt the food was good but the cell certainly seemed comfortable!

    This is so cool. I saw the bullet holes that were left by him at the Chicago train station one time. What history there!

  • That would be cool to see, he certainly got around!
