* Jack 'Machine Gun' McGurn
* St. Valentine's Day Massacre fame

The front page has a nice banner headline: "McGURN FACES KIDNAP QUIZ" with subheads. (see) Nice for display. McGurn was the main hit man for Al Capone during the gangster heyday of the 1920's. 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 28 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.
