THE DAY, New London, Connecticut, November 13, 1924 This 16 page newspaper has one column headlines on the front page:

* Funeral of Slain Gang Leader Will Be Held Tomorrow

This tells of the recent assassination of Chicago mob boss Dean O'Banion. This is early for Chicago mob news prior to Al Capone becoming a nationally known figure.

Other news of the day. Some tiny binding holes along the spine, lightly browned, otherwise in good condition.
