For twelve days in 1933, neighbors witnessed suspicious activity at this apartment above the two-car garage on the corner of 34th St and Oak Ridge Drive in Joplin, MO. The Barrow Gang (Bonnie Parker, Clyde Barrow, brother Buck Barrow and his wife, Blanche Barrow) played cards and drank here between robberies in Missouri and the surrounding states. Clyde accidentally set off his Browning automatic rifle here while cleaning.

On April 13, 1933, a group of five law enforcement officers surrounded the building, thinking they were about to break up a bootlegging ring. Bonnie and Clyde and the Barrow Gang shot their way out, killing two officers.

Behind they left most of their possessions, including an undeveloped roll of film that produced the iconic cigar-smoking Bonnie photos.
