1929 stock market to be prosperous ?.....

January 3, 1929
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 3, 1929
* Ironic heading re. Wall Street
* It certainly was a big year - just not what they were predicting
Near the bottom of the front page is a well-to-do heading that announces: "Stock Market Opens 1929 With Buying Rush: 5,413,610-Share Day Stirs Hope of Big Year" (see) Nice to have this contradictory report on the front page of the New York Times when the worst market crash in history was just around the corner that lead to the great depression.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 60 pages, light toning at the margins, a little spine wear, generally nice.
