Item # 656277

February 17, 1936

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, February 17, 1936

* Jack 'Machine Gun' McGurn assassination
* St. Valentine's Day Massacre fame
* Al 'Scarface' Capone hit man
* Best title to be had - very rare as such

The top of page 3 has a one column heading: "AUTO OF M'GURN, SOUGHT SINCE, IS FOUND" with subhead. (see) 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 spine.
