The front page has a great banner headline concerning the gangland wars in Chicago that reads: "MACHINE GUN ROARS; 2 SHOT" with subheads. Nice for display. This particular event involved "Machine Gun" Jack McGurn who was infamous for his involvement in the St.Valentine's Day massacre the following year.
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 34 pages. This is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such.
