The ftpg. has a one column heading: "RALPH CAPONE GOES TO PRISON FOR TAX TERM" with subhead. (see) Related photo on the back page.
After his sentence for income tax evasion the previous year, Al Capone was sent to a federal prison in Atlanta. He would later be transferred to Alcatraz. 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.
