1935 SS Mohawk shipwreck...

Item # 686437

January 25, 1935

THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 25, 1935.
* SS Mohawk shipwreck
* Ward Line ocean liner
* New Jersey coast collision
* Charles Lindbergh Baby Kidnapping Trial
* Bruno Hauptmann takes the stand
* Loads of court testimony

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "WARD LINER SINKS IN CRASH WITH FREIGHTER OFF JERSEY; ALL ABROAD BELIEVED SAVED" with subheads. First report coverage continues on page 3 with related photos and list of the passengers. Very early coverage here as the report suggests all were saved when in fact 47 would go down with the ship. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
The front page also has a three column headline: "HAUPTMANN TAKES STAND, SWEARS HE WAS AT HOME NIGHT RANSOM WAS PAID" with subheads. (see) Much more inside with multiple pages of court testimony and a few related photos. Loads and loads of text here.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 pages, light toning at the margins, generally nice.
