1903 Panama becoming independent...



Item # 675930

November 04, 1903

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Nov. 4, 1903

* Hay–Bunau-Varilla Treaty - Columbia
* Panama Canal Zone becoming independent


The top of the front page has a three column headline: "CITY OF PANAMA IS BEING BOMBARDED" 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 very nice.
