LA Times 30's Decade Book - Gift Details

The Los Angeles Times newspaper book uses reprinted coverage from this dominant U.S publication to create a fascinating reportage history of the key events throughout the 1930s.

Opening at the time of The Great Depression, you’ll read articles all about how the Empire State Building was under construction and of the mass migration of Mexican citizens when it begun in 1931.

Also included in the book are newspaper reports about when Roosevelt was elected as president in 1932, his political reign and attempts to recover the economy. Guiseppe Angara's attempted assassination is also covered in the book.

The emergence of Nazism in Germany appears in articles as early as 1931, covering the German bank crisis and Hitler's appointment as chancellor in 1933. By 1938, the headlines are dominated by impending war in Europe as Germany advances on Austria and other neighboring countries.

Sporting achievements were aplenty during the 30s and are covered frequently throughout the book, as are the Summer Olympics, which were held in Los Angeles in 1932 – a worldwide multi-athletic event. Due to the Great Depression, many athletes were unable to pay for the flights and compete. The longest dive and auto speed records are both broken during this decade also.
