THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 8, 1931
* Francis 'Two Gun' Crowley captured
* American murderer and career criminal
* New York City Police Department shootout
The top of the front page has a two column headline: "POLICE SLAYER CAPTURED IN GUN AND TEAR GAS SIEGE; 10,000 WATCH IN W. 90TH ST." with subheads. (see) First report coverage continues on page 3 with three related photos. Lengthy text here. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 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. Nice condition.
