Death of the King, reported in a London newspaper...
Item # 629741
February 6, 1952
THE EVENING NEWS, London, England, Feb. 6, 1952
* King George VI death
* Queen Elizabeth II reigns
* Best title to be had ?
The headline announces: "THE KING DIES IN HIS SLEEP AT SANDRINGHAM" and also: "Passes Peacefully Away Early To-day: The New Queen Flying Back From Kenya Immediately" & other related reports. Also a photo of King George VI and one captioned: "Princess Elizabeth, who will be 26 in April, becomes Queen."
As a "Late Extra" this is presumed to be complete in 6 pages. Minor margin tears, a "collector's Club" stamp in a lower blank corner, good condition. Great to have this report in a London newspaper.
