The front page has a nice banner headline for display that concerns the gangland wars in Chicago announcing: "'CLEAN UP CITY,' ALCOCK TOLD" with subheads. 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.
Missing the back page, 32 pages, rag edition in nice condition. A few small binding holes along the spine.
