Stock Market crash... Banner headline...
Item # 661556
October 29, 1929
THE MONTREAL DAILY STAR, Canada, October 29, 1929 See the photos for the great banner headline announcing the infamous stock market crash of 1929: "WORLD MARKETS NOSE-DIVE TO NEW DEPTHS" plus an equally dramatic subhead: "Slump Gathers Momentum; And Local Exchange Leads In Disastrous Price Crash" plus even more.
Rarely were newspapers this blunt in reporting this event, as editors seems to want to infuse a sense of calm and assurance among its subscribers. Use of the term "Nose-Dive" is quite dramatic.
Complete in 36 pages, disbound, lightly toned throughout, minor margin wear, generally nice.
