On This Day



On This Day… Love At First Sight!

Written by: George Chittenden : 26 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 5th January, back in 1930 when Clyde Chestnut Barrow met Bonnie Elizabeth Parker for the first time and the pair fell in love. The meeting took place at a mutual friend’s house, Clarence Clay, who lived at 105 Herbert Street in the neighbourhood of West Dallas.

A few months after their first meeting Clyde was sent to Eastham prison. During his stay he used a lead pipe to crush the skull of another inmate who had sexually assaulted him repeatedly and convinced another inmate to use an axe to chop off two of his toes to avoid hard labour in the fields.

In 1932 Clyde emerged from Eastham a hardened criminal, and Bonnie and Clyde’s campaign of robbery and murder began. At the time they were killed in 1934, they were believed to have committed thirteen murders, nine of which were police officers!

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
