Item # 657200

December 20, 1932

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, December 20, 1932

* Frank Nitti shot by Chicago police
* Al Capone henchman - gangsters
* Best title to be had - very rare as such

The front page has a nice banner headline: "CAPONE GANG CHIEF SINKING" with subheads that include: "POLICE BULLETS FELL NITTI, NEW ALCOHOL KING" and more. (see) Nice for display. A few related photos and illustration on the back page. 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.
