Dynamited Express Car
Here is an old postcard, mailed somewhere around 1910, featuring an Express Car that had been dynamited by the Kid Curry gang. They got away with $80,000 (according to the printing on the card). Let's have some fun and put that number into an inflation calculator on the web to see what it would be worth today. Using this calculator and 1913 (it was the earliest year on the calculator) we found out it was a pretty nice haul: $1,915,733.33. Have you ever heard of the "Kid" Curry gang?
Thanks for stopping by John's Island.
