Item # 628792
January 19, 1930
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 19, 1930
* Prohibition - 18th Eighteenth Amendment
* Wets vs. Drys in Washington D.C.
* Beginning of the end ?
The front page has a two column headline: "HOUSE DRYS ROUT THE WETS; $15,000,000 FOR PROHIBITION VOTED IN STORMY SESSION" with subheads. (see) Was this the beginning of the fight to repeal prohibition ? Lengthy text continues inside. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 30 pages, light toning, a little margin wear, generally good.
