Item # 621410
June 3, 1889
MEMPHIS APPEAL, Tennessee, June 3, 1889
* The great Johnstown flood of 1889
* South Fork Dam collapse
Almost the entire front page is taken up very lengthy & details reports on the horrific Johnstown Flood, with half of the first column taken up with heads including: "FLOODS OF TEARS" "A Solemn Sunday's Sighs and Sobs" "The Freshets of Nature Having Receded in & About Johnstown" "The Rescuers Search for their Dear Ones Hopelessly" and much more (see).
Eight pages, browned at the margins, a bit fragile, generally good.
