August 24, 1934
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, August 24, 1934.
* Outlaw Homer Van Meter death
* John Dillinger gang member
The front page has a five column headline: "Van Meter, Dillinger Gangster, Slain" with subheads. (see) A few related photos on the back page. When it comes to gangsters, organized crime, and the nefarious activities born out of the Prohibition and Great Depression eras, no city is more in the forefront of our minds than Chicago - and what better newspaper can be found than the Chicago Tribune, self-proclaimed to be "The World's Greatest Newspaper".
Complete with all 32 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such, a few small binding holes at the spine.
