First Alcatraz Prison escape attempt in a S.F. newspaper...



Item # 661685

April 28, 1938

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, April 28, 1936

* 1st Alcatraz Island escape attempt
* Federal prison - Joseph Bowers
* Best title to be had ?


The top of the front page has a one column heading: "Felon Slain In Alcatraz Escape Try" with subheads that include: "Man Was First to Attempt Flight From 'Devil's Isle'" and more with photo of Bowers. Great to have in this San Francisco publication, rare a such.
Complete with all 32 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
