THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 19, 1933
* End of Prohibition - repeal
* Alabama & Arkansas
* Beer - liquor returns
The top of the front page has a two column headline: "REPEAL WINS IN ALABAMA AND ARKANSAS BY 3 TO 2; LARGE WET VOTE IN CITIES" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the states of Alabama and Arkansas ratifying the repeal of prohibition. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 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.
