Barnum Museum fire in 1865....

Item # 223312

July 15, 1865

THE NEW YORK HERALD, July 15, 1865.

* P.T. Barnum
* Circus Museum fire

This 8 page newspaper has one column headlines on page 5 that include: "THE CONFLAGRATION" "Scenes Yesterday" "The Last Of Barnum's Museum" "The Smoking Ruins and the Crowds of Visitors" "A Glmpse of the Dead Whale" and more. Nice to have in a New York title.
Other news of the day throughout. Some foxing at the crases with some margin wear. Few margin tears as well.
