Rare SHERMAN ? Los Angeles Hollywood California - NOT LISTED 1921 Newspaper


eBay Auction Item # 392984721186

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: SHERMAN NEWS, California, May 26, 1921  * Very rare publication * Current-day West Hollywood * Pre-Sunset Strip, the Soho House, the Formosa Cafe, etc. Apparently a quite rare newspaper as we can find nothing about it, or that it even existed. This is the vol. 1, no. 5 issue and this title is not recorded in either the Union List of Serials, or Gregory's Union List of American Newspapers. Searching out a few advertisements show this is now within Los Angeles County, and Wikipedia states Sherman adopted the name "West Hollywood" in 1925. Quite a rare title which apparently never lasted beyond a few issues. Four pages, a little margin wear with a few tiny archival mends, generally good.
