* United States Supreme Court Building
* President Herbert Hoover laying the cornerstone
The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Hoover Lays Supreme Court Cornerstone; Hughes and Davis Speak for Bench and Bar" First report coverage on President Herbert Hoover laying the cornerstone for the new United States Supreme Court Building in Washington D.C. 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 42 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.
