Item # 636610
June 9, 1939
NEW YORK TIME, June 9, 1939.
* King and Queen of England (George VI)
* President Franklin D. Roosevelt - Eleanor
* Washington D.C. - White House visit
The front page has a five column headline: "KING AND QUEEN GUESTS AT THE WHITE HOUSE AFTER AN IMPRESSIVE WELCOME IN WASHINGTON; GEORGE HOPES WE WILL EVER WALK IN FREINDSHIP" with many subheads and photo. Much more on the following pages, loads of text. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 46 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.
