Mardi Gras newspaper...
Item # 567324
February 13, 1934
THE TIMES-PICAYUNE, New Orleans, Louisiana, February 13, 1934
* Mardi Gras issue from where it happened (rare)
For Mardi Gras collectors the festivities at New Orleans are of prime importance during the days before the beginning of Lent. Newspaper accounts from across the country report the doings in New Orleans, but having a New Orleans newspaper reporting the Mardi Gras is about as good as could be expected.
This issue features a banner headline on the front page: "THOUSANDS HAIL PROTEUS IN GORGEOUS CARNIVAL PAGEANT" with subheads and more. (see)
Terrific to have this report in a New Orleans newspaper and on the front page.
Complete in 20 pages, light browning with tiny binding holes at the blank spine margin, otherwise in good condition.
