Item # 565158
April 12, 1945
THE SCIO TRIBUNE--EXTRA !, Linn County, Oregon, April 12, 1945
* Very usual broadside extra
* Franklin D. Roosevelt FDR death
* Great for display
The photo below tells it all. We have never seen a newspaper with such a dramatic presentation on the front page. The publisher wanted to use larger letters than the width of his newspaper would allow so he set all the type below the masthead sideways:
* PRES. ROOSEVELT DIES!
The newspaper measures 12 by 18 inches with no printing on the back side of this single sheet. It is in great condition, and a terrific newspaper for display!
