Item # 657011

April 20, 1930


* Al 'Scarface' Capone seizing control of Chicago
* Racketeering unions - best title to be had (rare)

The front page has a one column heading: "CAPONE SEIZING UNIONS IN DRIVE FOR CITY POWER" 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 1st section only with all 26 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 blank spine.
