A "Cruise Around the World" newspaper from the midst of the Great Depression...
Item # 604226
February 2, 1932
RESOLUTE OBSERVER, "Published on board during the Cruise Around the World." on the Hamburg-American Line, Feb. 2, 1932. An interesting broadside issue (printed on the front only) published daily during an 86-day cruise, with tidbits on the trip for that day including mileage, the day's destination, weather, conditions, etc. At this point the ship was in the Middle East, near Palestine "bound for Djibouti". An ironic newspaper evidencing how the wealthy "muddled through" the Great Depression.
Nice masthead, 9 by 13 inches, nice masthead, very nice condition.
