October 13, 1933

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, October 13, 1933

* Early bank robber John Dillinger

The front page has a one column heading: "Kill Sheriff, Take Robber from Ohio Jail" Photo of Dillinger is on the back page. (see) First report coverage on the raid that freed John Dillinger from the Lima, Ohio prison. This event made Dillinger an nationally known public enemy.
Page 2 has a one column heading: "PRISON FOR LIFE GIVEN TO KELLYS IN URSCHEL CASE" with subhead. Related photo 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 48 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.
