A trip from the Missouri to the Pacific...
Item # 675689
April 21, 1866
NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE, April 21, 1866 The conclusion of the Civil War brought with it an interest in expending west, so it would not seem unusual that articles that read like a 19th century travelogue would appear in newspapers of the day.
This issue has one on page 3, which was part of a larger series: "FROM THE MISSOURI TO THE PACIFIC" with subheads: "Equable Clime of California--San Francisco Winds & Weak Lungs--Bracing & Stimulating Atmosphere--Wonderful Growth & Vigor of the City--Earthquakes--The Chinese--Yosemite Photographs..." and more, with a dateline from San Francisco.
The report takes nearly 1 1/2 columns and is very detailed on what was seen & experienced during the excursion.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
