Item # 655713
May 7, 1937
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, May 7, 1937
* Hindenburg airship disaster
* Lakehurst NJ New Jersey
* Photos for display
This is one of the best Hindenburg disaster issues we have offered.
See the many photos for not only the very dramatic front page but the two pages of photos inside. The three line banner headline announces: "Hindenburg, World's Largest Zeppelin, Completely Destroyed in Lakehurst Explosion; 33 Killed, 64 Escape Flames." The front page photo is very large & very dramatic. At the bottom of the ftpg. is a boxed-in article headed: "Hitler Stunned By Tragedy".
Just inside the front page are pages "A" and "B", both dominated by dramatic photos of the explosion and the injured. Many related articles as well
This issue is complete in 34 pages, has a library accession stamp in the upper right of the photo, and several small binding holes at the blank spine. Otherwise in excellent condition and terrific for display.
