My Life with Bonnie & Clyde : Blanche Caldwell Barrow

In 1932-33 Blanche worked as a beautician at the Cinderella Beauty Shoppe at 430 W. Sears (on the corner at Fannin Ave). The shop was owned by Blanche's sister-in-law, Artie Winkler, oldest sister of the Barrow brothers. Google shows it to be a vacant lot now, with only a set of concrete "steps to nowhere" to indicate that a house was once there.

In the pages that follow the photograph Blanche recounts the spring day in 1933 when she walked from the shop to the post office and, along the way, passed a Western Union boy on his bicycle. She learned a short time later that he was delivering a telegram from the just-pardoned Buck, who wrote, "Baby, I'll be home to you as soon as I can get there." True to his word, he and a third Barrow brother arrived in Denison early the following morning to take Blanche back to Dallas.
