Item # 671947

September 07, 1934

THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 7, 1934

* Honea Path, South Carolina riot
* Chiquola Mill workers incident
* General Textile Strike of 1934

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "7 STRIKERS KILLED IN SOUTH, SIX IN FIGHT WITH WORKERS; BAR TALK TILL MILLS CLOSE" with subheads. Lengthy text continues on the following pages with two related photos. Loads of text here. First report coverage on the Chiuola Mill incident at Honea Path, South Carolina during the general textile strike of 1934. Much coverage on the riots in other parts of the South. 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, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally very nice.
