1925 USS S-51 submarine disaster...

Item # 676186

September 28, 1925

THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 28, 1925

* USS S-51 class submarine
* U.S. - United States Navy
* 'City of Rome' collision  disaster

The top of the front page has a four column headline: "EFFORTS TO RAISE SUNKEN S-51 FAIL; GIANT CRANE SHIP DUE AT DAYBREAK; CAPTAIN DIEHL ANSWERS NAVY CRITICS" with many subheads and two related photos. (see) More on page 2. Coverage on the sinking the USS S-51 (SS-162) submarine near Block Island off of Rhode Island. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 40 pages, light toning, a few small binding slits along the spine, generally nice.
