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.

Item from Catalog 299 (released for October, 2020)...
