German torpedo sunk ship...



Item # 556154

February 7, 1918

THE NEW YORK TIMES, from New York, dated February 7, 1918

* SS Tuscania sunk
* German submarine torpedo


This 22 page newspaper has a nice three line banner headline on the front page:

* TUSCANIA, WITH 2,179 OF OUR TROOPS SUNK; 1,912 SURVIVORS LANDED AT IRISH PORTS; WASHINGTON FEARS 250 MEN ARE LOST

with many subheads and photo of the liner. (see photos)

Other news of the day. Usual browning with some spine wear and a few small tape mends near center, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.

wikipedia notes: The SS Tuscania was a luxury liner of the Cunard subsidiary Anchor Line, named after a town in Italy. She was torpedoed in 1918 by the German U-boat UB-77 while carrying American troops to Europe and sank with a loss of 210 lives.
