Item # 209657
June 11, 1898
THE TOPSFIELD TOWNSMAN, Massachusetts, June 11, 1898. An interesting and uncommon four page newspaper from this small Mass. town with various news of the day & other oddball tidbits throughout. The prime feature is the huge page 2 advertisement for Hires' Root Beer which takes fully half of the page (see photo). There is also much coverage of the Spanish-American War. Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, folded several times but still in nice condition.
