SUN-GAZETTE, Williamsport, Pennsylvania, August 14, 1945
* World War II ends
* Japanese surrenders
* Terrific headline
We have handled many dramatic V-J Day newspapers through the years but few have been as dramatic and displayable as this one. This "Special Edition", as noted in the upper left and right corners, has a bold, two line head taking the entire top half of the front page reading: "JAPANESE SURRENDER" using type which is 4 inches tall. There is also a 2 line, 5 column subhead: "Truman Announces Japs Accept Terms of Peace". The ftpg. photo is headed: "We Remembered" and across the photo: "Remember Pearl Harbor ! "
Bold banner head on pg. 2 reads: "Truman Announces End of Hostilities". There are also maps and related photos throughout, plus several reports chronicling the war in the Pacific Theater.
Complete in 8 pages, a small piece from the very top margin of the front leaf which is mostly hidden by the leaf behind it, otherwise some minor margin tears and very minimal wear at the central fold.
