Item # 677842
July 10, 1928
THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 10, 1928
* Early Al Capone report
* Chicago gangster war
* Alcohol - beer - prohibition era
* re. Frankie Yale Uale murder
Page 25 has one column headings that include: "CAPONE PUTS 5 HERE DAY UALE WAS SLAIN" "Politicians See Gangster" "Track Capone Gangsters" and more. Coverage on Capone this early are somewhat rare, prior to the St. Valentine's Day massacre. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Also on page 25 is a report that states that cigarette smoking does not cause cancer. (see)
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 pages, light toning at the margins, a few small binding slits along the spine, generally nice.
