Chicago Spotlight: Al Capone

Notorious for its mob activity, Chicago was also home to Al Capone (aka "ScarFace"). Capone led a Prohibition-era mob known as the "Capones," which was dedicated to smuggling and bootlegging liquor, along with other illegal activities, such as prostitution. Capone purchased this two-flat house, at 7244 South Prairie Avenue in the south side, in 1923 for $5,500.
