Should have stayed in his car
"Big" Arthur Callen, 38, was a Philadelphia "Big Shot". He drove about in a bullet proof car which, we are told, saved his life at least a couple of times. However, on this date back in 1929 Arthur was standing at Park Side and Memorial Aves. when a gunman walked up and fired six dum dum bullets into him. The gunman walked to getaway car which was conveniently nearby and was whisked away. Arthur stayed where he was.
