Item # 676291
March 09, 1909
EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, March 9, 1909
* Brinkley, Monroe County, Arkansas
* Tornado & fire disaster - destruction
The top of the front page has a three column headline: "TORNADO DEVASTATES ARKANSAS TOWN; 35 KNOWN DEAD, 50 HURT" 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 8 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, some small binding holes along the spine, some tiny margin tears, generally nice.
