Item # 687054

February 17, 1933

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, February 17, 1933

* 18th Amendment - prohibition
* Senate votes to repeal - 21st Amendment

The top of the front page has a two column headline: "SENATE VOTES DRY REPEAL BY CONVENTIONS IN STATES; HOUSE WILL ACT MONDAY" with subheads. First report coverage on the United States Senate approving the repeal of prohibition. 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"
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 30 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Great condition. A few small binding holes along the spine.
