The top of the front page has a great banner headline: "FLOOD OF LIQUOR NEARS U. S." with subheads. (see) Nice for display. Related photo is on page 19. Coverage on the impending ratification of the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution, repealing the 18th Amendment. 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" - attributed in part to its dramatic, banner headlines! Whether hanging on your wall or part of an ongoing collection, these events are sure to capture the flavor of this infamous period in American history.
Complete 1st section only with 24 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.
