* Rare Babe Ruth at Yankee Stadium photo
* King Prajadhipok & Queen Rambaibarni of Siam
Page 21 has a rare photo showing Babe Ruth with King Prajadhipok & Queen Rambaibarni at Yankee Stadium. Also a one column heading: "SIAMESE RULERS SEE YANKEES WIN" with subheads. (see) Such a photo would only be found in a NYC publication.
Other news of the day. Complete 1st section only with all 26 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.
