Tudor City's first front-page headline in the Daily News, January 12, 1933.
The Tudor City wife was Mrs. Garnet McCabe, a housewife, and the slain husband was Evert McCabe, a wealthy executive. They were residents of The Woodstock. See our earlier post for the full story here.

As was the News' style at the time, the front page photos are unrelated to the headline (It was not until the 1940s that the big-headline-big-photo layout became the paper's signature). On this particular front page, the top photos concern singer Libby Holman's premature baby. Below them, Mr. and Mrs. Maurice Chevalier, on the brink of divorce, and a picture made at the funeral of a murdered child.
