Baby Face Nelson killed... Battle of Barrington...

Item # 666016

November 30, 1934


* George Bace Face Nelson killed
* Battle of Barrington - Illinois

The front page has a nice banner headline: "'U. S. TRAILS NELSON'S WIDOW" with subheads that include: "AGENTS BELIEVE HER A WITNESS TO FATAL FIGHT" (see) More on page 4. Two small related photos on the back page. 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 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.
