1903 Alcatraz Prison escape by forgery...



Item # 675927

October 13, 1903

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Oct. 13, 1903

* Alcatraz Prison - San Francisco
* Four escape with fake pardons


The top of the front page has a two column headline: "DARING FORGERY DISCOVERED" 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 6 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, generally nice.
