Early Al "Scarface" Capone...



Item # 647498

November 22, 1927

THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 22, 1927

* Early Al 'Scarface' Capone report
* Chicago gangland war strengthens
* Police outgunned

Page 31 has one column headings that include: "CHICAGO GANGSTERS SEIZED IN NEW WAR" "Two Killers Wait in Courtroom for "Scarface" Capone, but He Fails to Appear" and more. (see) 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. Complete in 60 pages, light toning at the margins, minor spine wear, generally nice.
