p.8, Chicago Ledger, v. XLI, no. 30, July 26, 1913.

This week finds a raft of new titles including over sixteen issues of the Chicago Ledger, the famous color illustrated story paper out of the Windy City. While you are reading about becoming a Detective, perhaps you might listen to some of the newly available Irish musical sets from 1977 like Mick Moloney and Eugene O’Donnell, or Trim the Velvet. Enjoy the Spring!
