September 10, 1923

THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 10, 1923

* Honda Point Disaster
* United States Navy warships
* Destroyers

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "7 U.S. DESTROYERS WRECKED IN PACIFIC; 23 SAILORS ARE LOST AND 700 RESCUED; SHIPS COSTING $3,500,000 A TOTAL LOSS" with subheads. (see) Lengthy text here. First report coverage on the 7 United States Navy warships running aground on the California Coast. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 pages, irregular along the spine, otherwise nice.
