True Crime Dull Tool Dim Bulb. Lurid Drawings by a Young Woman Underworld True Crime Stories
Two lurid drawings by a young woman in 1947. These come from an album of original art (and a few tracings?) with the initials M.R. Lets assume these two weren't drawn from life. There were dozens of true crime pulps during the era, although most confused "true" with "fiction." Dad must have had these issues around, but Mom surely read them.
