Fantastic headline... Japanese surrender...

Item # 575410

August 14, 1945

SUN-GAZETTE, Williamsport, Pennsylvania, August 14, 1945 

* Great headline; one of the best I've seen
* V-J Day - World War II ends

We have handled many dramatic V-J Day newspapers through the years but few have been as dramatic and displayable as this one. This "Special Edition" as noted in the upper left and right corners front page has a bold, two line head taking the entire top half of the front page reading: "JAPANESE SURRENDER" using type which is 4 inches tall (see photos). There is also a 2 line, 5 column subhead: "Truman Announces Japs Accept Terms of Peace". The ftpg. photo is headed: "We Remembered" and across the photo: "Remember Pearl Harbor ! "
Bold banner head on pg. 2 reads: "Truman Announces End of Hostilities". There are also maps and related photos throughout, plus several reports chronicling the war in the Pacific Theater.
This issue is complete in 8 pages and fortunately is in nice condition. There is almost no wear along the folds and there is some light foxing to the bottom right quadrant of the front page, otherwise very little wear to mention. A very displayable issue.
