The Baldwin Hills Dam disaster...



Item # 610462

December 15, 1963

LOS ANGELES TIMES, Dec. 15, 1963 

* Baldwin Hills Reservoir dam disaster
* It is BEST to have reports from the city where an event occurred

The banner headline notes: "DAM BURSTS WITH DEATH, DESTRUCTION" with various related subheads and A large photo of what is known as the Baldwin Hills Dam disaster in Los Angeles. See the hyperlink for further details of the tragedy which killed 5 and destroyed 277 homes. Terrific to have this report in a Los Angeles newspaper, where the tragedy happened.
The complete first section (of 18) with pages 1-26. Light toning at the central fold, nice condition.
