Annals of Crime #56


Original Caption:

Pittsburgh -- With her door key for a weapon, Mrs. Hilda Hess of Pittsburgh strikes the fighting pose with which she whaled the tar out of a young thug who snatched her purse. Mrs. Hess, a former barmaid, chased the robber for several blocks, cornered him in an alley and gave him a going over until he returned her property. He then took to his heels. When he had vanished, Mrs. Hess looked in the purse and found that the sixty-some dollars she had in it had gone with the wind. (1947)
