Dead Men Can't Talk

The Kray Twins were a couple of evil criminals from the East End of London that were the leading gangland thugs of the 1950s and 60s. They murdered and threatened people, while trying to live a glamorous lifestyle by trying to rub shoulders with the rich and famous of the day.

But their deadly empire came to an end and they were sent to prison for 30 years in 1969. Ronnie Died in 1995, and Reggie in 2000.

The Galleries of Justice presently have a small exhibition about their life, trial and death. The exhibition contains photos, items and documents about the twins who were born in October 1933. They also have a soundtrack accompanying the exhibition, containing news reports and music of the day. Whilst I was there, The Rolling Stones came on with Jumping Jack Flash.
