March 21, 1930
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, March 21, 1930
* Al 'Scarface' Capone whereabouts unknown
* Alcohol seized from his Miami Beach home
The top of page 3 has a one column heading: "FLORIDA RAIDS CAPONE'S RUM; SIX ARRESTED" with subhead. (see) Aerial photo of Capone's Miami home is 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".
Complete with all 40 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.
