A classic train robbery...

Item # 646087

November 23, 1900

THE ARIZONA GAZETTE, Phoenix, Nov. 23, 1900 

* Rare old West title
* Maricopa County
* Train robbery

Actually a Territorial issue as Arizona did not become a state until 1912. The top of a ftpg. column has classic "Old West" headlines: "A TRAIN HELD UP" "The Cannon Ball Train Assaulted By Robbers" "Express Box Seized" "Company's Big Safe Resisted the Attempts of the Highwaymen Successfully" with details on the attempted train heist by "...half a dozen masked men...".
Eight pages, small binding holes at the blank spine, nice condition.
