Gambling starts in Reno, Nevada..

Item # 650322

March 23, 1931

THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 23, 1931

* Gambling becomes legal in Nevada
* Reno NV gaming begins
* Las Vegas would follow

Page 14 has a two column heading: "Reno, in Full Dress, Gambles All Night; 'Divorce Cure' Patrons Hailed in Resort Song" with related photo showing a chuck-a-luck game of chance. Coverage on the legalization of gambling in Reno `that would lead to the business boom of the famous Las Vegas Strip. I suspect this would be one of the few publications to report this event as other titles in our inventory did not.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 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. Very nice condition.
