Leadville, Colorado booming...

Item # 647638

May 06, 1880

ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, May 6, 1880

* Leadville, Colorado on the rise
* Silver mining boomtown

This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The back page has an article headed: "A Look At Leadville" "Visit to the Greatest Mining Camp in the World" and more. (see) Text takes up more than a full column.
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 10 pages, irregular along the spine, nice condition.
