Mardi Gras newspaper...
Item # 567507
February 28, 1933
THE TIMES-PICAYUNE, New Orleans, Louisiana, February 28, 1933
* 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 nice banner headline on the front page: "JOYFUL THRONGS TO HAIL REX TODAY" with subheads. (see)
Terrific to have this report in a New Orleans newspaper and on the front page. This upcoming day was the climax of the famous carnival.
Complete in 20 pages, light browning with little margin wear, otherwise in good condition.
