Al Capone: Life of crime
These images of Al Capone from the 1920s and 1930s were digitized from glass-plate negatives that were kept for decades in a basement storage room at Tribune Tower, five floors below Michigan Avenue street level. Protected in paper envelopes, the glass-plates were filed haphazardly. The photos were recently located and brought to the newsroom for scanning. Some of these digitized glass-plate images have never before been published.
