An Old West Newspaper from Stockton, CA......

Item # 573326

July 24, 1880

STOCKTON DAILY INDEPENDENT, California, July 24, 1880 

* Rare wild Old West title
This 4 page newspaper has news of the day with several interesting advertisements. With newspapers West of the Mississippi being very rare prior to 1900, here is an opportunity to get a issue from the old West back when cowboys, Indians, saloons, gold miners & gunfights were often seen on a regular basis.

This issue contains the following reports: "A Remarkable Railroad", "A Circus Rider Of Quality", "Investigation of the Narragansett Disaster", and more.  Of greater interest may be the large quantity of illustrated ads (see images).

Early for California. Minor margin wear, otherwise in nice condition.
