First report coverage on American bank robber Tommy Carrol being shot & killed by police. 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 38 pages, rag edition in nice condition. A few small binding holes along the blank spine.
