Amelia Earhart's Pittsburgh welcome...

Item # 618062

July 25, 1928

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 25, 1928

* Aviatrix Amelia Earhart
* Post Atlantic Ocean flight
* Airplane "Friendship"
* Pittsburgh welcome

Page 5 has one column headings: "Miss Earhart Rides In Locomotive Cab" "Dons Cap and Overalls at Pittsburgh After Being Welcomed by City"1st report coverage on Amelia Earhart being Pittsburgh's guest of honor after her famous flight across the Atlantic Ocean.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, minor irregularity along spine, generally nice.

Note: While the major historic events in Amelia Earhart's life can be read about through multiple venues (books, newspapers, magazines, etc.), many of the more obscure events can only be found within a handful (at most) of daily newspapers of her day. Yet, it is these reports which add color to one of the most beloved personalities of the 20th century. Thankfully, the New York Times was one of the few publications which emphasized such reports.
