Chicago gangland war.... gangsters & politicians...
Item # 656683
August 05, 1928
THE NEW YORK TIMES, section 8 only, August 5, 1928
* Gangsters - gangland - underworld
* Chicago crime & politics alliance
The front page of this section 8 only has a nice banner headline: "CRIME-RIDDEN CHICAGO FIGHTS THE GANG; Vigilantes in the Role of a Crime Commission Are Making a Determined Effort to Break Up the Alliance Between Politics and the Criminal Element Whose Trade Is Murder, Corruption and Intimidation" with smaller subheads and 2 related illustrations. Coverage on the recent unrest in Chicago's gangland crisis about 7 months prior to the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. Nice for display.
Other topics throughout. Eighteen pages, irregular along the spine, otherwise very nice.
