Map of Chicago Gangland (poster-wrap)

490mm x 700mm, 90gsm uncoated cream Italian paper. Use as gift wrap, decorative paper or a poster.

Rare 1931 cartoon map of prohibition-era Chicago, showing gang territories and key moments during the reign of Al Capone, the city’s most notorious gang leader . Published towards the end of prohibition and just as Capone’s dominance was fading, the map was banned by city councillors who sought to improve Chicago’s reputation as one of the most dangerous places in America. Not surprisingly, the artist never revealed his identity.  Adapted from ‘A Map of Chicago Gangland from Authentic Sources’, Bruce-Roberts, Inc. (1931). Courtesy Geographicus Rare Antique Maps.
