CORONADO EVENING MERCURY, California, February 14, 1888
* Uncommon title
* Hotel del Coronado ad
Very uncommon newspaper from this city in San Diego Bay. Considered an island, but technically a peninsula connected to the mainland by the "Silver Strand". This was the year the world-famous Hotel Del Coronado opened, with a front page advertisement for it (see). It opened as the largest resort hotel in the world. It remains very famous today.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, some tears at the folds that are archival mended, some small margins tears, should be handled with care.
