NEW YORK TIMES, November 26, 1930.
* President Herbert Hoover
* Declares war on gangsters
* Al "Scarface" Capone era
The front page has a one column heading: "PRESIDENT DEMANDS WAR ON GANGSTERS; PUTS DUTY ON STATES" with subheads. (see) Great depression era when Al "Scarface" Capone was in power. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
