A rare title from this Colorado town...
Item # 619618
October 13, 1883
SALIDA WEEKLY MAIL, Colorado, Oct. 13, 1883
* Very rare Old West title
A very rare title, as there are no institutions noted in Gregory (Union List of American Newspapers) which have any holdings of this title. In fact Gregory doesn't even note the existence of a weekly edition of this title, just the semi-weekly edition titled "Salida Mail". The only holdings of any early "Mail" issues were purchased by us from the Kansas St. Hist. Society.
The town of Salida was founded in 1880. Today the 5200 pop. community is basically a tourist destination.
Complete in 4 pages, archivally rejoined at the spine, very nice condition.
