The front page has a one column heading: "SEGRAVE SMASHES AUTO SPEED RECORD IN DAZZLING DRIVE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage continues on page 20 with two related photos. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 60 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. Light creasing, nice condition.
