Item # 642229

February 11, 1928

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 11, 1928

* Hollinger Gold Mine fire disaster
* Timmins, Ontario, Canada

The front page has a one column heading: "FIRE TRAPS 47 MEN IN CANADIAN MINE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the fire at the Hollinger Gold Mine in Timmins, Ontario, Canada. Thirty-nine miners perished in this disaster.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. A little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
