THIS DAY IN THE YESTERYEAR: THE GREAT BRINK’S ROBBERY (1950)


The Great Brink’s Robbery (1950)

After months of planning a heist on Boston’s Brink’s building, a band of 11 robbers put the plan in motion on January 17, 1950. Seven men dressed like Brink’s workers—but with masks and gloves—entered the building around 7 PM and left with $2.7 million about 30 minutes later. The robbers conspired not to touch the bulk of the money until the statute of limitations expired. It appeared to be the perfect crime, but the gang members were arrested in 1956.

What Happened To: On the Brink of Extinction

Kansas – Hold On


Look in the mirror and tell me 
Just what you see 
What have the years of your life 
Taught you to be 
Innocence dyin’ in so many ways 
Things that you dream of are lost 
Lost in the haze 

Hold on, Baby Hold on 
‘Cause it’s closer than you think 
And you’re standing on the brink 
Hold on, Baby Hold on 
‘Cause there’s something on the way 
Your tomorrow’s not the same as today 

Don’t you recall what you felt 
When you weren’t alone 
Someone who stood by your side 
A face you have known 
Where do you run when it’s too much to bear 
Who do you turn to in need 
When nobody’s there 

Hold on, Baby Hold on 
‘Cause it’s closer than you think 
And you’re standing on the brink 
Hold on, Baby Hold on 
‘Cause there’s something on the way 
Your tomorrow’s not the same as today 

Outside your door He is waiting 
Waiting for you 
Sooner or later you know 
He’s got to get through 
No hesitation and no holding back 
Let it all go and you’ll know 
You’re on the right track 

Hold on, Baby Hold on 
‘Cause it’s closer than you think 
And you’re standing on the brink 
Hold on, Baby Hold on 
‘Cause there’s something on the way 
Your tomorrow’s not the same as today
