Item # 691545

June 13, 1929


* Chicago gangland wars
* Al 'Scarface' Capone era
* Prohibition & great depression

The front page has a great banner headline for display concerning the gangland wars in Chicago that reads: "UPHOLDS DRY RULE BY GUNS" with subheads. Related photos are on the back page.
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.
