Prohibition ending in 1933....

Item # 634206

March 17, 1933

THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 17, 1933

* Prohibition ending
* Beer returning
* Legal liquor

The front page has a four column headline: "SENATE VOTES 3.05 BEER AND WINE" with subheads. (see) This led the way for president Roosevelt enacting the beer bill a few days later which legalized the sale of beer and wine. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication. More on page 3.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 38 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
