Several articles at the time referred to the robbers as gentlemen because they allowed my grandfather to take his heart medication before robbing them. They locked all ten of the residents in the room where the safe was before making their getaway. I doubt $7700 was what they expected to take in, but maybe in 1947 it wasn't as meager as it seems. They were never caught. But the ten people played bridge at a table left in the room until a waiter let them out the next day. The bottom picture is my grandmother in the room they lived in for all those years. But she never had to cook a meal!
