On the 1929 stock market crash...



Item # 691557

October 27, 1929

CHICAGO SUNDAY TRIBUNE, October 27, 1929 

* Stock market crash of 1929
* During the heart of the crash


The stock market crash of 1929 did much to define America for the next decade, resulting in the Great Depression and all the trauma relating to it. It seemed common for many newspapers to put a positive spin on this on-going tragedy, so front page reports often conflicted with the reality of the time.
The front page of this section has a banner headline: "Crash in Stock Values Fails to Wipe Out Long Advance" with subheads. Unfortunately a printing flaw causes some text loss here.
Complete section 3 only with 10 pages, rag edition in nice condition save for the printing flaw.
