Item # 672161

July 09, 1935

THE NEW YORK TIMES, July 9, 1935

* Watkins Glen flood (1st report)
* Seneca County, New York
* Finger Lakes region

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "37 DEAD IN UP-STATE FLOODS, 7 MISSING, MANY HOMELESS; DAMAGE IS PUT AT $10,000,000" with subheads. First report coverage continues on page 3 with two related photos. Lengthy text.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 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.
