THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 20, 1933
* End of Prohibition - repeal
* Beer - liquor returns
* New Mexico - Idaho
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "IDAHO, NEW MEXICO JOIN REPEAL RANKS; 31 STATES IN LINE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the states of New Mexico and Idaho ratifying the repeal of prohibition. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 46 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. Minor spine wear, nice condition.
