1911 French battleship Liberte explosion disaster...
Item # 676357
September 25, 1911
EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Sept. 25, 1911
* French battleship Liberte explosion
* Toulon, France Harbor disaster
The front page has a great banner headline in large lettering: "500 ARE KILLED" with: "Great Disaster Befalls French Navy In Toulon Harbor" and subheads. Nice for display. 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 12 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
