Gangland's death chair. If a gangster sits in this chair, which is Capt. Stege's Chief of Chicago's Detectives office, his doom is sealed. 14 hoodlums have sat in this chair and each have gone to his death, most of them via rides. Al Capone sat there not long ago. The right arm bears fourteen nicks. Chicago, Ill.
