World the war may be over: from the city where it began...



Item # 672653

August 14, 1945

GAZETTE AND BULLETIN, Williamsport, Penn., Aug. 14, 1945

* World War II ending
* Japanese surrendering


The front page banner headline is an early announcement that the war with Japan was coming to an end: "JAP RADIO BROADCASTS TOKYO WILL ACCEPT ALLIED SURRENDER TERMS" with a subhead. (see) Nice for display. Indeed, the next day's edition in newspapers across the country would announce the official end of WWII.
The complete issue with all 12 pages, a little wear at the folds with a small hole at the center, generally good.
