Neat title...

Item # 684446

March 21, 1925

THE MOSQUITO, Perth Amboy, New Jersey, March 21, 1925  A curious little newspaper which appears to be the combination of the Middlesex Plain Dealer and the Perth Amboy Press. Filled mostly with local news and tidbits, many quite folksy and humorous, plus many ads as well. The ftpg. has a bit noting: "Christy Mathewson, of baseball fame, was recently named one of the trustees of the American Legion's disabled veterans' fund...".
A volume one issue of a very short-lived title as Gregory notes the last recorded date as March 15, 1926. Issues held by only two institutions.
Eight pages, measures 9 by 12 inches, good condition.
