Item # 577592
November 23, 1927
THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 23, 1927
* Early Al Capone report
* Chicago gangster wars strengthen
* Police outgunned
This 52 page newspaper has one column headlines on the back page (pg. 52): "Hunt Chicago Gangs In Armored Cars", "Police, After Killing One, Arrest Eighteen to Stop Deadly Feud"
Reports mentioning Capone this early are very rare, more than a year prior to the St. Valentine's Day massacre. Nice reporting near the beginning of the Chicago gangster wars.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout. Rag edition in great condition.
