"Black Friday's" 1st appearance in the NYT...

Item # 700569

November 24, 1975

THE NEW YORK TIMES, Nov. 24, 1975

* 1st mention of "Black Friday" in the NYT

Pages 21 & 23 contain coverage of the Army Navy game with an article in which the New York Times links Thanksgiving and the Army Navy Game via Black Friday. "Philadelphia police and bus drivers call it 'Black Friday' - that day each year between Thanksgiving Day and the Army-Navy game.  It is the busiest shopping and traffic day of the year in the Bicentennial City as the Christmas list is checked off and the Eastern college football season nears conclusion". An interesting take on the origin of the concept "Black Friday".

Complete in 54 pages, some water staining (shown in the included photos), otherwise in good condition.
