Unknown Pulp: Ladies of the Underworld

Here is a completely unknown Pulp I just found listed, that’s NOT on GALACTIC CENTRAL or The FictionMags Index.

The phrase “…a seven day dose of atomic power” probable places the date after August 1945, the publics first knowledge of the Atom Bomb drop.

LADIES OF THE UNDERWORLD – June #1 19?? 25¢ Pulp Style 36 Pgs. recently sold on eBay for $102.51 and another dealer has a “Buy It Now” for $299.00 !!!
