Best Al 'Scarface' Capone released from prison....

Item # 675196

March 19, 1930


* Al 'Scarface' Capone released from prison
* Chicago beer baron - gangster boss
* Best title to be had (very rare as such)

The front page has a one column heading: "CAPONE CALLS GANG TO MEET HIM IN INDIANA" with subhead. Related photo with heading on the back page. (see) Coverage on Al Capone's release from prison after serving 10 months for illegal gun possession. 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 42 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 spine.
