Baltimore, Maryland riot in 1917...
Item # 619148
April 2, 1917
THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 2, 1917 The front page has one column headings: "Riot At Baltimore Ends Peace Meeting" "Great Crowd Invades Hall Where Jordan is Speaking--Banker and Others Clubbed" (see photos). Sad to see the ongoing racial-strife that has pervaded Baltimore's landscape for over 100 years. Nice to have this timely report on the front page.
This issue is complete, and is in good condition for the era, but it is VERY fragile - with edge chipping (see photos). It must be handled with care.
