Al Capone was just a cocky tough kid from Brooklyn when South Side boss Big Jim Colosimo took him on in 1919. Within a few years, Capone had taken control of Chicago's biggest operation in bootleg hooch, making this one of the Prohibition era's wettest and most colorful cities. By 1931, Capone was on trial for tax evasion and on his way to Alcatraz. Before he left town, Capone made his mark on infamous gangster Chicago's history.
This tour will take you to the sites where Big Al Capone, his enemies, and his cronies; worked, played and fought. Many of the locations have changed—some of the buildings have even been razed or converted to different functions. Use your imagination during your visits: Envision tough guys in pin-stripe suits, spats and fedoras (Al Capone was known as a spiffy dresser) carrying Thompson submachine guns and riding on the running boards of roadsters. Photos have been provided to help you ‘visualize’ the locations during this 1920’s time of Gangsters, Guns, and Bootleg!
