* Al 'Scarface' Capone burial
* Former Chicago gangster leader
Page 26 has small and somewhat discrete one column headings: "Capone Buried In Chicago" "Less Than Twoscore at Services in Tent at the Grave" See image for brief report on the burial of infamous mob boss, Al 'Scarface' Capone. Interesting that he got such a small report in death when he made front page headlines in the late 1920's.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout. Complete in 48 pages, rag edition in very nice condition.
