THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 13, 1927
* Holland Tunnel officially opens (1st report)
* 1st underwater tunnel
* Best title to have in ?
The top of the front page has one column headings that include: "GREAT CROWD TREKS INTO HOLLAND TUBES AFTER GALA OPENING" "Thousands Pour In as Coolidge on Yacht Turns Switch With Golden Key" "Hundreds of Honking Cars Rush Through Tunnels From New York and Jersey Sides" and more (see). Article continues on page 26 with related photos. (see photos) Loads of text, too much to photograph. First report coverage on the 1st underwater tunnel opening between New York City and New Jersey. Great to have in this famous NYC title.
Other news of the day. Complete 1st section only with all 32 pages, a few small binding slits along the spine, minor wear at top left corner, otherwise very nice condition.
