June 08, 1920
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, June 8, 1920
* Prohibition begins in America
* United States Supreme Court
* No beer - liquor
The front page has a terrific banner headline: "COURT RULES U.S. BONE DRY" with subheads. (see images) Nice for display. Great to have framed at any local bar. This is what threw Chicago into the gangland wars of the 1920's and early 1930's.
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 with 28 pages, light toning and minor wear at the margins, close cut along the right margin (unrelated), generally in good condition.
