The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Fifteen Killed in Week-End Clashes in Reich; Reds Shoot at Nazis From Roofs in Altona" (see) First report coverage on the "Altona Bloody Sunday", a violent confrontation between the (SA) and (SS), the police, and Communist Party supporters. 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, 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.
