Very dramatic Hindenburg explosion issue...
Item # 612900
May 8, 1937
BALTIMORE NEWS-POST, May 8, 1937 The front page features a very large photo of one of the more iconic disaster photographs of the 20th century, the zeppelin Hindenburg moments after it burst into flames. The photo is captioned: "Thirty-one persons met a horrible death as the Hindenburg, Germany's proud trans-oceanic zeppelin exploded in midair at Lakehurst, N.J." The banner headline announces: "CAPT. LEHMANN DIES" "Among 31 Victims Of Zep Blast".
The text begins on the front page but concludes on page 26 which is not present. Pages 2, 3 & 4 are filled for photos of the disaster (see).
Present are pages 1-22 only, mostly loose at the spine, some minor margin tears, generally nice condition. A terrific issue for display with this huge & dramatic front page photo.
