On the 1929 stock market crash, in the New York Times...
Item # 656100

CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, November 13, 1929
* Stock Market Crash of 1929
* Wall Street anxiety continues
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 here has a five column headline: "100 Stocks Hit New Lows in Bear Raid" with subheads. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication. And the many pages within this issue 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 great condition as such.
