Item # 667992

December 14, 1933

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, Dec. 14, 1933 

* John Dillinger gang bank robbery 
* Before He became nationally known
* Best title to be had - very rare as such


The front page has a great banner headline: "7 SEIZE BANK; LOOT VAULTS" with subheads. Nice for display with  related photos are on the back page.
This was the work of the John Dillinger Gang while he & fellow gangsters were in the midst of the Mid-Western crime spree.
Much detail on the robbery with a subhead; "Bandits Crack Cash Boxes In Daylight Raid" "Five Victims Bound by Gang".
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" - attributed in part to its dramatic, banner headlines! Whether hanging on your wall or part of an ongoing collection, these events are sure to capture the flavor of this infamous period in American history.
Complete in 32 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. Small binding holes at the blank spine, re-glued at the spine, nice condition.
