Dramatic issue on the execution of Bruno Hauptmann...

Item # 671272

April 03, 1936

THE SUN, San Diego, California, April 3, 1936 

* Charles Lindbergh baby kidnapping
* Bruno Hauptmann execution
* Nice headline for display

A quite dramatic front page with the bold banner headline: "STOLID BRUNO DIES IN CHAIR" and also: "State Claims Lindy Kidnapper" with a photo montage of various men involved, featuring  Bruno Richard Hauptmann.
Included as well is a 2nd front page from an earlier edition, featuring the execution order given by the judge.
Present are pages 1-12 which I presume to be section one of a two section newspaper. There are many tears & some disfigurements to the inside pages, but fortunately the front page is reasonably nice. An inked stamp at the bottom margin of the ftpg.
