Item # 668257

September 25, 1933


* Gus Winkler arrested for murder
* St. Valentine's Day Massacre suspect
* Al 'Scarface' Capone hit man
* Best title to be had - very rare as such

The front page has a great banner headline: "WINKLER SEIZED IN KILLING" with subheads. (see) Nice for display. Two related photos are on the back page. Winkler would be killed about two weeks later.
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 with all 30 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.
