Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: THE NEW YORK TIMES, Oct. 28, 1929 * Stock market crash of 1929 * During the heart of the crash * Best title to be had ? The stock market crash of 1929 did much to define America for the next decade, resulting in the Great Depression and all the trauma relating to it.
