BF Goodrich and his tubeless tire...
Item # 558948
May 12, 1947
THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, May 12, 1947
* BF Goodrich
* Tubeless tire invention 1st report
This 44 page newspaper has small, discrete one column headlines on page 36: "DEVELOPS TUBELESS TIRE" and "Goodrich Testing New Product Before Placing on Market"
Tells of the initial discovery of this tire that we all use today. A non-important event at the time is probably the reason for the discrete report but it is what it is.
Other news of the day throughout. Light browning, otherwise in nice condition.
