A photograph of the gangster Al Capone and Chicago Commissioner of Detectives John Stege, 1930.

Photograph’s original caption reads: "Alphonse Capone, released from a Philadelphia jail, set Chicago on its ears, when he appeared unheralded in the office of John Stege, Commissioner of Detectives, and blandly inquired if he was wanted for anything. Capone with his attorney was then escorted to the Federal building where the same question was put to the United States District Attorney. On the same night Gangdom banqueted the Big Fellow and the slogan was made "All for Al and Al for All." Text overlay on photograph reads: "What have you got on me Chief?”
