Prohibition ending in 1933....



Item # 657235

March 17, 1933

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, March 17, 1933

* Prohibition ending
* Beer returning
* Legal liquor

The front page has a great banner headline: "LEGAL BEER IN THREE WEEKS" with subheads. Nice for display. This led the way for president Roosevelt enacting the beer bill a few days later which legalized the sale of beer and wine. 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 32 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.
