The top of the front page has a three column headline: "YOUNG QUEEN ASTRID KILLED AS KING'S CAR HITS A TREE; LEOPOLD SLIGHTLY INJURED" with many subheads. (see) lengthy text continues on page with pictorial. 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.
