THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 19, 1925

* Steamer Mackinac

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "23 KILLED, 100 INJURED IN EXPLOSION ON EXCURSION STEAMER OFF NEWPORT; YACHTS AND NAVY BOATS AID RESCUES" with subheads and early list o victims. First report coverage on the boiler explosion of the Steamer Mackinac near Newport, Rhode Island. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40 pages, irregular along the spine, generally nice.
