Item # 662167

November 06, 1934


* Kelayres Massacre - Pennsylvania
* Democratic parade shooting
* "Big Joe" Bruno

The front page has a nice banner headline: "FIRE ON VOTERS' PARADE; 3 DIE" with subheads. (see) Nice for display. First report coverage on the Kelayres massacre, an attack on Democratic parade marchers near Hazleton, Pennsylvania. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 30 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 save for a few small binding holes along the spine.
