Prohibition is void ?...

Item # 691812

December 16, 1930


* Prohibition has failed ?
* Wickersham commission
* re. Eighteenth Amendment
* Nice headline for display
* Al 'Scarface' Capone era

The front page has a nice banner headline: "MOVE FOR MODIFIED DRY LAW" with subheads. (see) Nice for display. 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" - attributed in part to its dramatic, banner headlines! Whether hanging on your wall or part of an ongoing collection, these events are sure to capture the flavor of this infamous period in American history.
Complete 1st section only with 26 pages, rag edition, light toning at the margins, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
