Item # 630989

June 24, 1912

THE EVENING TIMES, Pawtucket, Rhode Island, June 24, 1912

* Eagle Park Pier, Buffalo, New York excursion disaster
* Front page details

The front page has: "COLLAPSE OF DOCK CAUSES 30 DEATHS," with the subhead: "16 Bodies Taken From Niagara River - 14 Missing - Over 100 Thrown In River When Waiting for Excursion Steamer at Eagle Park Pier," followed by considerable details. Other news of the day and period advertising are found throughout.
Complete in 12 pages, even toning, and somewhat fragile - but quite nice for the period.
