CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, January 27, 1934
* John Dillinger & gang captured

The front page has a one column heading: "DILLINGER GANG FACING DEATH AS STATES ACT" with subhead. Lengthy coverage continues on page 2. A few related photos and map are on the back page. Dillinger would be sent to Crown Point Jail in Indiana where he would make his famous "wooden" gun escape. 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 28 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.
