Item # 657118
April 26, 1930
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, April 26, 1930
* Ralph Capone guilty of tax evasion
* Chicago gangland gangster - mobster
* Best title to be had - very rare as such
The front page has a great banner headline: "GANGSTER CAPONE TO PRISON" with subheads. Nice for display. Related photo on the back page. (see) Ironic this was the same charged that would put his more famous brother away the following year. 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.
