EXTRA! EXTRA! by Joseph Henry Jackson

Anyone interested in newspapers -- of any age -- will find this fun, and vastly enlightening. How does the newspaper get Extras on the street almost before the event heralded has been finished. Here in fine photographs and illuminating text, two members of the staff of the San Francisco Chronicle show us how it is done, from the flash of the event, through collecting the data, preparing it for press, and rushing it into the hands of the eager public. An extraordinarily good piece of condensation.
