The sport's section (page 17) has a banner headline: "Ruth Gets Rousing Ovation in Farewell Boston Appearance as Yanks Divide" with subheads and box scores. This was Babe Ruth's final game played at the famous baseball stadium. 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.
