September 26, 1925

THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 26, 1925

* USS S-51 class submarine (1st report)
* United States Navy
* 'City of Rome' collision  disaster

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "U.S. SUBMARINE S-51 SUNK, 37 LIVES LOST; HIT BY STEAMSHIP OFF BLOCK ISLAND WHILE SUBMERGED ON PRACTICE CRUISE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the sinking the USS S-51 (SS-162) submarine near Block Island off of 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 with all 36 pages, light toning at the margins, a few small binding slits along the spine, nice condition.
