Additional Details

From the Collection of John Binder.

A rogue's gallery of local bad guys who could easily have been the inspiration for Ben Affleck's film, The Town (2010). The consignor has done his homework and provided documentation about which men were associated with organized crime organizations in Boston's colorful past (as opposed to being "common criminals"). Included are Thomas W. Nee, James Manville (or Mantville), Patrick Nee, James Murphy and Paul McGonigal.
