THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 16, 1922
* Arverne, Queens, New York City fire
* Best title to be had ?
The top of the front page has a three column headline: "400 BUILDINGS BURNED AT ARVERNE; 10,000 MADE HOMELESS, 60 INJURED; LOSS $4,000,000 IN HALF SQUARE MILE" with subheads. (see) Reporting continues on page 2 with related photos. Loads of text here, too much to photograph. First report coverage on the fire disaster which destroyed a large part of Arverne, Queens, New York. Nice to have in this famous NYC title.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 36 pages, light toning, a little irregular along the spine, generally in good condition.
