1924 Mobster Hymie Weiss assassination...



Item # 678158

October 12, 1924

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, Oct. 12, 1926

* Hymie Weiss assassination (1st report)
* Chicago Polish mobster - bootlegger - racketeer
* North Side Gang leader - gangster
* Rival of Al 'Scarface' Capone
* Best publication to be had - very rare !


The top of the front page has a nice banner headline: "KILL GUNMAN; LAWYER SHOT" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the assassination of Chicago mob boss Hymie Weiss. Weiss was known as 'the only man Al Capone feared'. Great to have in this World famous Chicago publication. Very rare as such.
Twenty-eight pages, some margin wear and chipping with minimal text loss, some archival mending on page 2 to a few tears, still a nice item for display. Should be handled with care.
