STOCKTON DAILY RECORD, California, May 1, 1915
* Sinking of the RMS Lusitania warning ?
The top of the last column has a foreboding headline: "NOT ONE PASSENGER ON LUSITANIA LEFT VESSEL THRU FEAR" "Strange Attempt to Intimidate People From Sailing on Cunard Liner" "German Embassy Sent Public Warning" "That People Sailing on Enemy's Ships Do So at Own Risk".
The article begins: "Despite the delivery of anonymous telegrams troops prominent passengers, warning them that the liner would be sunk...the Cunarder Lusitania sailed from New York today...with practically a full passenger list..." with more.
A fascinating front page report in light of what would be the headline just 6 days later: the sinking of the Lusitania.
Complete in 12 pages, good condition, but issues from this era are rather fragile & must be handled carefully.
