Item # 614258

July 4, 1883

ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, July 4, 1883

* SS Daphne disaster
* Govan, Glasgow, Scotland
* Shipyard launching sinking

This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The front page has an article headed: "CAPSIZED IN THE CLYDE" "Frightful Accident at the Launching of the Steamer Daphne, Near Renfrew, Scotland" and more. (see)
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 10 pages, a little irregular along spine, nice condition.
