Item # 659078
September 10, 1947
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, September 10, 1947
* Excursion steamer Island Queen
* Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania fire disaster
The front page has a six column heading: "21 Dead or Missing in Excursion Ship Fire" with subheads. Small related map on page 14. A full back page pictorial is nice for display. (see) First report coverage on the excursion steamer "Island Queen" explosion on the Monongahela River at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with 56 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
