The front page has a one column heading: "UALE GANG LEADER SLAIN LIKE HIS CHIEF" with subheads that include: "Abbatemarco Shot Four Times in Quiet Brooklyn Street by Gunman in Auto With Him" and more. (see) First report coverage on the assassination of Brooklyn gangster, Michael "Mike Shots" Abbatemarco, during the prohibition era. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 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. A few small binding slits along the spine, nice condition.
