Item # 633223

January 2, 1933

THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 2, 1933

* Rumrunner Larry Fay killed
* Prohibition era rum-running
* NYC bootlegger - gangster


The top of the front page has a one column heading: "LARRY FAY IS SLAIN IN HIS NIGHT CLUB; DOORMAN IS HUNTED" with subheads. (see) Lengthy first report coverage continues on page 3 with photo and list of his prior offenses.
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.
