The top of the front page has a one column heading: "80 MILES AN HOUR MADE ON THE RUN" with subheads. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 8 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
