Same-day report of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre...

Item # 656991

February 14, 1929

QUINCY EVENING NEWS, Massachusetts, Feb. 14, 1929 

* St. Valentine's Day Massacre
* George 'Bugs' Moran & Al Capone
* A very early, same day report

An unusual same-day report on the infamous St. Valentine's Day Massacre appears on page 2. Given it being a very early report (most were in newspapers on the 15th) it is rather brief, with a one column head: "6 Are Slain By Gangsters In Beer War".
The text begins: "Six employees of a North Side cartage company were murdered with sawed-off shot guns today...when two automobile loads of bandits raided the garage..." with more.
The ftpg. has a photo of: "Famous Flier and His Bride-to-Be" showing Anne Morrow and Charles Lindbergh, with a related article.
Complete in 16 pages, binding slits at the blank spine, great condition.
