1910 Primero, Colorado coal mine disaster...



Item # 676516

February 01, 1910

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Feb. 1, 1910

* Primero coal mine mining explosion disaster
* Las Animas County, Colorado ghost town


The top of the front page has a three column headline: "SEVENTY-NINE DEAD IN MINE EXPLOSION" with subheads. (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 10 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, some small binding holes along the spine, a few small tape mends along bottom margin, generally nice.
