It was said that Bonnie and Clyde died as they lived - by the gun  - and generations later, the pair's legend continues to live on.

This fall a Dallas gallery, Photographs Do Not Bend Gallery (PDNB), featured rarely-seen photos of the couple during what is believed to be moments before their deadly shootout with police.

THE DATA: These Houston neighborhoods have the most reported crime

Bonnie Elizabeth Parker of Rowena, Texas and Clyde Chestnut Barrow of Telico, Texas were notorious during the early 1930s for robbing banks and killing whoever got in their way. They were suspected of killing at least nine police officers, robbing ten banks and many more rural stores and gas stations over a handful of years.

Now Playing:

Artifacts once belonging to notorious American gangsters sold for more than $100,000 at an auction on Saturday. A diamond pocket watch that belonged to Al Capone in the 1920s sold for the highest amount among the items, reaching over $84,000. Capone's handwritten musical composition from Alcatraz in the 1930s sold for more than $18,000, and a letter written by Bonnie of the infamous couple Bonnie and Clyde just before their deaths sold for more than $16,000.

In 1933, after a police shootout in a Joplin, Missouri hideout, Bonnie and Clyde left two policemen dead and a roll of undeveloped photos. The photos in the gallery above are among those photos, among them, an image of the pair embracing and kissing in Missouri and posing with guns, cigars, and cars.

Their outlaw lives came to an end on May 23, 1934, when a team of Texas Rangers, led by Captain Frank Hamer, tracked the couple down in Bienville Parish, Louisiana where an ambush was waiting. PDNB reports that about 107 rounds of ammunition were shot in less than two minutes and both Bonnie and Clyde were riddled with more than 50 bullets each.

PDBN featured the photos in their gallery in November and following the exhibit, a private owner bought the photos.

See these rarely-seen photos of Bonnie and Clyde in the gallery above.
