HARPER'S WEEKLY, from New York City, dated July 26, 1913.

This issue has a color cover sheet over it.

In this issue there is a photo with a caption that says "A fishing-smack containing seven men capsized in a sudden squall on Gravesend Bay. Six of the Party were Taken off by Life-Lines; But the Last Man could not Swim, and He Refused to leave His Perch Until Half a Dozen Launches Closed in and a Life-Preserver was Tossed to Him." There is also a full page photo called "The Tenth Inning" and the double page centerfold has many smaller photos with include "The Fifty-Million-Dollar Baby Inspecting his Live Stock" plus much more.

Other advertisements of the day are included as well, helping to portray life at the turn of the century. This issue is in very good condition.
