May 5, 1996 article one

PIX#1 - This postcard of the Union National Bank depicts the old First National Bank building much as it looked on May 3, 1934 when John Dillinger came to Fostoria with bank robbery on his mind. This week is the 62nd anniversary of the heist. Many thanks to Ray Dell for the use of his postcard.

The two men had overcoats slung over their arms to conceal their machine guns when they entered Fostoria
