1930 Fox Lake, Illinois gangster massacre....

Item # 688294

June 03, 1930


* Fox Lake Massacre (2nd report)
* Chicago gangland gangster war
* Al 'Scarface' Capone vs. George 'Bugs' Moran ?
* Best title to be had (very rare as such)

The front page has a one column heading: "SEIZE 200 ALIEN SUSPECTS; WAR ON GANG KILLERS" with subhead. (see) Second report coverage on the Fox Lake, Illinois gangster raid which many consider to be a retaliation for the infamous St. Valentines' Day massacre. 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.
