Amelia Earhart's welcome home....

Item # 673083

June 21, 1932

NEW YORK TIMES, June 21, 1932.

* Amelia Earhart welcome home
* NYC Ticket tape parade
* Transatlantic flight (Airplane)
* 1st woman to achieve solo

The front page has one column headings: "MRS. PUTNAM HOME; GETS CITY'S HOMAGE" "Greeted Down Bay by Swooping Planes, Cheered by Throngs and Decorated by Mayor" and more. (see) Coverage on page 3 with related photos. Lengthy text here. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially on this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 46 pages, light toning at the margins, generally very nice.
