Item # 688314
June 15, 1931
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, June 15, 1931
* Gangster Al 'Scarface' Capone
* Income tax evasion case
* Best title to be had (rare)
The front page has a five column headline: "Capone, in Trap, Ponders Guilty Plea" with subheads. Related photo is on the back page. (see) Capone would plead guilty the following day.
Terrific to have this report in a Chicago newspaper, home to so much of the gangland activity during the Prohibition era.
Complete with all 34 pages, rag edition in nice condition. A few small binding holes along the spine.
