The front page has a great banner headline: "ESPOSITO WITNESS IS SLAIN" with subheads. Nice for display. Six related photos are on the back page. First report coverage of the assassination of Diamond Joe Esposito, prohibition-era Chicago gangster & Republican ward boss. 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.
