Found on EBay – Los Angeles Examiner

Aug. 1, 1936, Examiner Aug. 1, 1936, Times

The Aug. 1, 1936, edition of the Los Angeles Examiner has been listed on EBay. I thought it would be illuminating to compare it to the cover of The Times.  Both are eight-column pages, but The Times has crammed in far more stories, plus a three-column index in the lower left corner.  We sure  like headlines like “SHIRLEY TEMPLE DEATH PLOT!”   [The Times: “Shirley Temple Plot Traps Young Suspect.”]
Bidding on the Examiner (d. 1962) is Buy It Now for $45 or make an offer.

    “Shirley Temple Death Plot” was my favorite band in the ’80s!
