THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 7, 1934
* Honea Path, South Carolina riot

The front page has a three column headline: "7 STRIKERS KILLED IN SOUTH, SIX IN FIGHT WITH WORKERS; BAR TALK TILL MILLS CLOSE" with subheads. Lengthy text continues on the following pages with two related photos. Loads of text here. First report coverage on the Chiuola Mill incident at Honea Path, South Carolina during the general textile strike of 1934. Much coverage on the riots in other parts of the South. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 46 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.
