Item # 671077
September 11, 1919
THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 11, 1919
* Boston Police Strike & riots
* Trade union & wage improvements
* Lawlessness infiltrates the city
The top of the front page has a nice banner headline: "TROOPS USE MACHINE GUN ON BOSTON MOB; 5,000 GUARDING CITY AS RIOTS CONTINUE; CITY ACCLAIMS PARADE OF FIGHTING FIRST" with subheads. (see) Nice for display. Coverage on the Boston Police Strike which caused several nights of lawlessness in the city.
Complete with 32 pages, light toning at the margins, a little irregular along the spine, a printing flaw slightly affects mentioned headline (see), generally very nice.
