THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 24, 1933

The top of the front page has a three line, two column headline: "REPEAL BY 20 TO 1 IS VOTED IN STATE; 6TH WET VICTORY" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the state of New York ratifying the repeal of Prohibition in the United States. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
