THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 12, 1933
* End of Prohibition in Oklahoma
* Connecticut & New Hampshire
* Beer - liquor returns
The front page has a one column heading: "BEER BY NEARLY 2-1 VOTED IN OKLAHOMA" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the states of Oklahoma, Connecticut and New Hampshire 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.
