Brooklyn Daily Eagle Front Page

Top half of the front page of the newspaper Brooklyn Daily Eagle has banner headline reading 'Wall St. In Panic As Stocks Crash' which describes the massive fall in stock value on what became known as Black Thursday, October 24, 1929. The stock market crash is often considered the starting point of the Great Depression of 1929 - 1941. Other headlines recount an attempt to kill Italian Crown Prince Umberto (1904 - 1983) (left) and a campaign finance scandal concerning American industrialist and later senator Joseph R. Grundy (1863 - 1961) (right). (Photo by FPG/Getty Images)
