1917 Mattoon IL tornado outbreak....
Item # 596922
May 27, 1917
THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, May 27, 1917
* Mattoon Illinois tornado outbreak
* Nice headline for display
The front page has a nice banner headline: "OVER 100 DEAD AND 2,000 HOMELESS"
with subheads that include: "Spring Tornadoes Devastate Towns In Central West" "Mattoon Almost Wiped From Face Of Earth" (see photos)
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40+ pages, light browning, minor margin wear, otherwise nice. Should be handled with care.
