October 20, 1987
WALL STREET JOURNAL, New York, Oct. 20, 1987 The front page proclaims the famous report of the stock market crash of 1987, reading: "Stocks Plunge 508.32 Amid Panicky Selling" with a subhead: "Percentage Decline Is Far Steeper Than '29; Precious Metals Gain". Also a 3 line, 1 col. head: "A Repeat of '29? Depression in '87 Is Not Expected".
Included on the ftpg. are two graphs, one showing the Dow Jones average in 15 minute intervals and the other the huge volume by the half-hour.
This crash ranks among the worst in American history, certainly alongside the famous crash of 1929 which began the Great Depression.
This is the complete issue with both sections and 72 pages, in great condition.
Certainly the best title to have for this notable stock market report.
