Our last issue of this cruise newspaper...

Item # 592570

February 27, 1932

RESOLUTE OBSERVER, "Published on board during the Cruise Around the World." on the Hamburg-American Line, Feb. 27, 1932. An interesting broadside issue (printed on the front only) published daily during an 86-day cruise, with tidbits on the trip for that day including mileage, the day's destination, weather, conditions, etc. At this point the ship was in the vicinity of Thailand. An ironic newspaper evidencing how the wealthy "muddled through" the Great Depression. Small folio size, nice masthead, mostly nice and measuring 9 by 13 inches.
