Graphic issue on the sinking of the Lusitania...
Item # 674862
May 07, 1915
THE ROCK ISLAND DAILY UNION, Illinois, May 7, 1915
* RMS Lusitania torpedoed and sunk
* Nice headline and photo for display
A very nice & graphic first report of the sinking of the Lusitania, with a 2-line banner headline: "Giant Liner Lusitania of Cunard Line is Sunk in the Irish Sea by Either Torpedo or Infernal Machine". Also a rather large photo headed: "Cunard Liner Lusitania Sunk off the Irish Coast by Germans". Related subheads as well.
Complete in 12 pages, irregular at the spine margin, mostly loose at the spine, light toning and minor wear at the margins, generally good. Should be handled with care.
