RR Auction Bonnie Parker at Marco’s Cafe Photo

18 Jun

RR Auction  Bonnie ParkerOriginal vintage 6 x 4 pearl-finish photo of a young Bonnie Parker behind the counter at Marco’s Cafe circa 1929. Photo shows Bonnie in her full uniform by the cash register with two men at the counter. Photo is identified on the reverse in ballpoint, likely by Bonnie’s sister Billie Jean Parker, “Marco’s Cafe, Bonnie Parker.” In very good condition, with scattered creases, spotting to left side of image, and some soiling and a label remnant to reverse. Bonnie worked at Marco’s Cafe in Dallas until the cafe closed in November 1929, roughly the same time her then-husband Roy Thornton was sentenced to five years in prison, and shortly before her first meeting with Clyde Barrow.
