Chicago wants Al "Scarface" Capone to leave...
Item # 656977
March 22, 1930
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, March 22, 1930
* Gangster Al "Scarface" Capone
* City of Chicago wants him out
* Best title to be had - rare as such
The front page has a great banner headline: "CAPONE'S STORY: BY HIMSELF" with subheads. Nice for display. Related photo is on the back page. (see) First report coverage on Al Capone turning himself in to Chicago police after returning to the city from a 10 month prison sentence in Philadelphia. He would never again be able to present himself in public on the Chicago streets. His final arrest would come about a year later. 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 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 blank spine.
