Kursaal Amusement Park, Southend and Al Capone’s Car

Today is my regular writing slot on Worldwide Genealogy Blog – a global collaboration of genealogists and historians.   My post on that blog today is the story of how my American great-uncle, Harry Elmo LaBreque, brought the bullet proof car of Chicago gangster and America’s “public enemy number 1”, Al Capone, to the seaside amusement park of the Kursaal, Southend in 1933.
