Ratification of the Prohibition amendment...
Item # 665265
January 17, 1919
THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, January 17, 1919
* Prohibition (no beer, liquor) wins
* 18th Amendment ratification
* 3/4 of the states needed is met
The front page has a terrific banner headline: "U. S. DRY; 2 STATES OVER" with subhead. Nice for display. First report coverage on Nebraska formally ratifying the 18th amendment to the Constitution & causing Prohibition to take effect the next year. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 24 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, mainly along the spine, generally in good condition.
