A broadside "Cruise Around the World" newspaper from the midst of the Great Depression...



Item # 683271

May 01, 1932

RESOLUTE OBSERVER, "Published on board during the Cruise Around the World." on the Hamburg-American Line, May 1st, 1932   An interesting broadside issue (printed on the front only) published daily during an 86-day cruise, with tidbits on the trip for that day including mileage, the day's destination, weather, conditions, etc. At this point the ship was "Bound for Honolulu". An ironic newspaper evidencing how the wealthy "muddled through" the Great Depression.
Nice masthead, 9 by 13 inches, single sheet, very nice condition.

Item from Catalog 321 (released for August, 2022)...
