John Dillinger in Crown Point Jail w/ photo....



Item # 655799

February 1, 1934

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUINE, February 1, 1934

* re. Outlaw John Dillinger capture
* Crown Point, Indiana jail photo


The top of page 3 has a one column heading: "HOLDUP VICTIMS NAME DILLINGER AS POLICE KILLER" with subhead and related photo. Another photo on the back page shows Dillinger  at Crown Point, Indiana. He was captured just a few days earlier. 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 34 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.
