May 23, 1932

THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 23, 1932 

* Amelia Earhart - London welcome
* re. Transatlantic flight (Airplane)
* 1st woman to achieve solo

The top of the front page has one column headings: "MRS. PUTNAM LANDS AT LONDON IN STORM; GREETED BY MELLON" "Crowds at Croydon Airdrome Disappointed as Ocean Flier Goes to Private Field" "Cheered In Pouring Rain" and more. (see) Coverage continues on page 3 with a wire-photo. (blurry) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 34 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. Very nice condition.
