Item # 643888
October 28, 1919
THE NEW YORK TIMES, October 28, 1919
* Volstead Act veto overridden
* Total Prohibition in United States
The front page has a one column heading: "HOUSE, 176 TO 55, OVERRIDES VETO OF PROHIBITION BILL" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the House overriding the president's veto of the Volstead Act. This is a very significant issue reporting an event which would lead America into a very tumultuous, crime-ridden era. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 pages, small library stamp within masthead, generally in nice condition.
