Early Al Capone...
Item # 577593
January 22, 1928
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 22, 1928
* Early Al Capone report
* Not wanted in Miami, Florida
This 150+ page Sunday newspaper has one column headings on page N5 (inside section): "Asks Capone To Leave" and "Miami Beach gets Chicago Gang Leader's Promise"
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 of the day throughout including period advertising. Light browning, little spine wear, otherwise in good condition.
