First Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade...

Item # 647457

November 28, 1924

THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 28, 1924 

* First Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

As much a tradition on Thanksgiving Day as turkey is, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, first held in 1924. 
This newspaper reports that very first event, with a pg. 15 one column heading: "GREET SANTA CLAUS AS 'KING OF KIDDIES'" "Crowds Cheer Him in Parade and Witness Coronation in Macy's New Store" "Floats In The Pageant" "Visit to City on Thanksgiving Day Marks Unveiling of Big Christmas Window" with the article taking just short of half a column. A very significant newspaper on the beginning of this annual tradition, and terrific to have in this famous New York City newspaper.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Thirty-two pages, some margin wear with a small chunk torn away at the top right corner, should be handled with care.
