Item # 670901
October 23, 1911
EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, October 23, 1911
* Harrisburg, Saline County, Illinois
* O'Gara coal mine explosion disaster
Near the bottom of the front pager is a one column heading: "NINE MINERS KILLED BY EXPLOSION" with subhead. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 16 pages, a little irregular along the spine, small library stamp within the masthead, generally nice.
