Marysville: gateway to the gold fields...

Item # 663697

December 01, 1877

MARYSVILLE DAILY APPEAL, California, July Dec. 1, 1877

* Rare Old West title

In the days of the California Gold Rush, Marysville was a stopping point for riverboats from Sacramento and San Francisco that carried miners on their way to the digging grounds. A sign on the roadside as one enters Marysville carries the slogan: "Gateway to The Gold Fields." At that time it was one of the largest cities in California, named after one of the survivors of the Donner Party tragedy. News of the day plus a great wealth of ads.
Four pages, a little irregular along the spine, minor margin wear, generally in good condition.
