Prohibition coming to an end ?....
Item # 656948
June 5, 1930
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, June 5, 1930
* Prohibition coming to an end ?
* Illegal beer & liquor to return ?
* Gangster days are numbered ?
The front page has a great banner headline: "ASK ILLINOIS: WET OR DRY?" with subheads. (see) Not a historical event here but a very nice issue for display regarding the fight to end prohibition. When it comes to 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 with all 38 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.
