Extremely rare vintage hanging photo. The photo on the left is a picture of Joe Chesnes who was arrested for murder and sentenced to hang for the killing of mail carrier Billy Unsell. The photo on the right is a picture of him about to be hung on 6/17/1927. This was the last hanging in Saline County, Harrisburg, Illinois. It was written at the time that Joe "took death very calmly" and had "smiled and winked at a spectator just before the black cap was adjusted." The two photos are in the original frame that measures 22" x 14". The photos themselves are 7" x 9". There are condition issues that would be expected from an original framed piece from this era. Please see the photos for the exact condition. Hanging photos of this type are rarely seen and almost never come to market. An exceptional piece.
