Terrific Honolulu newspaper, one day after Pearl Harbor...
Item # 655203
December 8, 1941
THE HONOLULU ADVERTISER, Hawaii, Dec. 8, 1941
* Attack on Pearl Harbor
* U.S. to enter World War II
* Imperial Japanese Navy
* Great headline for display !
Fully one-third of the newspaper, above the masthead, is taken up with a dramatic three line banner headline: "SABOTEURS LAND HERE ! Britain, Australia Declare War ! " with various related subheads as well including: "Raiders Return In Dawn Attack". The only ftpg. photo shows is of the: "Carnage in King Street" from the Japanese attack on Sunday morning.
Complete as an 8 page newspaper. There is some minor repair work on page 2 to repair two holes at the folds, an older tape mend on pg. 2, generally good condition.
A rare opportunity for a very dramatic, scarce title, a first report from the other newspaper on the island of Oahu.
