The top of page 17 has a one column heading: "NORMANDIE SAILS FOR A NEW RECORD" with subheads and photo. (see) First report coverage on the start of Normandie's return trip after her maiden voyage. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 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.
