CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, Nov. 1, 1929
* The great stock market crash of 1929
* The Great Depression beginning
The stock market crash of 1929 did much to define America for the next decade, resulting in the Great Depression and all the trauma relating to it. It seemed common for many newspapers to put a positive spin on the on-going tragedy, so front page reports often conflicted with the reality of the time.
The front page has a one column heading: "STOCKS CLIMB 3 TO 17 POINTS IN THREE HOURS" with subhead. (see) And the many pages within provide a fascinating glimpse of life during those tumultuous weeks.
Complete with all 46 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In good condition as such.
