CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, March 26, 1947
* Centralia, Illinois
* Coal mine explosion disaster
The front page has a great banner headline in bold lettering: "73 IN MINE! 23 DEAD" and "Explosion Rips Illinois Pit; 1st Survivor's Story" with subheads. Nice for display. Two related photos are on the back page. (see) First report coverage on the coal mine disaster at Centralia, Illinois. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 42 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
