Green Hornet Trolley Disaster in 1950....
Item # 670443
May 26, 1950
THE DETROIT NEWS, May 26, 1950
* Green Hornet Trolley Disaster (1st report)
* Chicago street car & gas truck collision
The front page has a nice banner headline: "33 DEAD IN TROLLEY FIRE" with subheads & large photo of the wrecked trolley. Nice for display. Three more photos are on the back page. (see) First report coverage on the Green Hornet trolley disaster during a torrential rainstorm in Chicago.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 64 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. Some small binding hole along the spine.
