“Pretty Boy” Robs Hometown Bank

This flower shop in Sallisaw, Oklahoma used to be a bank in Charles “Pretty Boy” Floyd’s hometown. (Actually, he lived in nearby Akins.)

Many of them gathered across the street, complete with picnic lunch. Read more about Charles Arthur Floyd, the Oklahoma Bandit King.

  1. You know, and I’m not just saying this because I’m flirting, your blog is really interesting — and it’s so different from everybody else’s. I am a fan. I am getting a lot of work done on my Hustler piece…maybe working a little faster because I’m eager to buzz home in my little temporary Insight! Woooeeeeee!
