Wets vs. Drys in 1930 Chicago gangland wars...

Item # 691546

February 21, 1930


* Prohibition era alcohol in gangland Chicago
* Wets vs. Drys and the depletion in farming
* Al "Scarface" Capone era

The front page has a banner headline: "FARM WOES LAID TO DRY LAW" with subheads. 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 40 pages, the rag edition in very nice condition. A few small binding holes along the spine.
