Page 9 has a one column heading: "Killing Of Police Spurs Hunt For Texas Outlaws" First report coverage on the killing of two patrolmen by Clyde Barrow and his "cigar smoking" woman companion, Bonnie Parker. Rare to find reporting on this famous duo prior to their deaths.
Also on the same page is another one column heading: "ST. PAUL POLICE FIND DILLINGER FINGERPRINTS" with subhead and related photo. (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 32 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.
