The top of the front page has a two column heading: "WRIGHT BROTHERS ARE RECIPIENTS OF MEDALS" with subheads and related pictorial. (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. Rare as such.
Complete with 8 pages, light toning, some small binding hole3s along the spine, generally very nice.
