The front page has two column headings: "Churchill Resigns to Force General Election in Britain" and "Doenitz, Jodl, Others Held; German Regime Is Dissolved" with subheads. Lengthy coverage continues inside with photo of Churchill.
Also near the bottom of the front page is a two column headings that reads: "Streicher, Anti-Semite, Is Seized By Jewish Major From New York" (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 36 pages, 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. Very nice condition.
