Item # 629980
February 6, 1931
THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 6, 1931
* Race driver Malcolm Campbell
* Bluebird car speed record
* Daytona Beach, Florida
The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Campbell Drives Auto 245 Miles an Hour, Four Miles a Minute, a World Speed Record" (see) First report coverage continues on page 13 with related photo. 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.
