Item # 636517
August 9, 1933
THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 9, 1933
* End of Prohibition - repeal
* Beer - liquor returns to Arizona
The top of the front page has a two column headline: "IOWA VOTES WET, ALSO CONNECTICUT, NEW HAMPSHIRE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the state of Arizona ratifying the repeal of prohibition. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 38 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.
