The front page has a nice banner headline: "BYRD HOPS OFF UNEXPECTEDLY AT 5:25 A. M.; FORESEES SOME HEAD WINDS, FOG AND RAIN" with many subheads & photo. (see) Lengthy text continues on page 2 with another related photo and map. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 pages, a little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
