Golden Gate Bridge construction disaster...
Item # 669485
February 18, 1937
SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE--EXTRA, Feb. 18, 1937 The front page has a great & very dramatic banner headline above the masthead: "TEN DIE ON GATE SPAN" with a nice subhead: "Bridge Scaffolding Falls, Tears Net and Plunges 12 Into Sea" with more.
The ftpg. also has a large photo labeled where it began to rip and where it gave way, as well as showing insets of 3 men falling.
The very graphic coverage on the next four pages is quite dramatic as well.
Present are pages 1-12, which may be all that were printed with this "Extra" edition. In very nice, clean condition. A very displayable issue.
