Item # 578542

July 30, 1926

SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN, Springfield, Massachusetts, July 30, 1926

* Early Al Capone report
* Chicago gangster war
* Jail release

This 24 page newspaper has a small one one column headline on page 3: "SCARFACE" CAPONE ABSOLVED OF MURDER". Reports on Capone this early are very rare, almost three years prior to the St. Valentine's Day massacre.

Other news and advertisements of the day are within.

Light browning with little margin wear, otherwise in good condition. Should be handled with care.
