1923 Chicago gangland war... Control for beer...

Item # 699292

September 19, 1923


* Battle for the liquor - beer control
* Chicago gangland wars
* Mob boss Johnny Torrio era
* Prohibition & great depression
* Best title to be had - rare as such

The front page has a nice banner headline concerning the gangland wars in Chicago that reads: "POLICE SHAKEUP IN BEER WAR" with subheads. (see images) 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 with all 38 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, generally good.
