Item # 659861
January 26, 1947
CHICAGO SUNDAY TRIBUNE, January 26, 1947
* Al Capone death (1st report)
* Chicago beer baron
* Gangster - mob boss
* Best title to be had (rare)
The front page has a terrific banner headline announcing: "AL CAPONE DIES IN FLORIDA" with subhead. Very nice for display. First report coverage continues on page 12 with 2 related photos. A printing crease slightly affects the continuation here. (see) Great to have in the famous Chicago publication, very rare as such.
Thirty-eight pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp along the last column of the front page, small binding holes along the spine, the mentioned crease on page 12, generally in very nice condition.
