THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 18, 1929
* McAlester, Oklahoma mining disaster
* Old Town Mine explosion
The front page has a one column heading: "OKLAHOMA BLAST ENTOMBS 59 MINERS" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on the explosion at the Old Town mine in McAlester, Oklahoma. 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 54 pages, light toning at the margins, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
