Image of two men holding shotguns and standing in a garage at 2122 North Clark Street in the Lake View community area of Chicago, Illinois, aiming the shotguns at a group of men holding their hands up, standing with their backs to the men who are holding the guns. This is a reenactment of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, also known as the Moran Gang Massacre, when reputedly members of Al Capone's gang disguised themselves as policemen and murdered members of the George Moran (Bugs Moran) gang. A large group of men is standing in the garage. Dr. Herman N. Bundesen, Cook County Coroner, is standing next to the men holding the guns.
