1910 USS Florida battleship launching...

Item # 676768

May 12, 1910

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, May 12, 1910

* USS Florida (BB-30) launching
* United States Navy battleship
* Brooklyn Navy Yard - New York

The top of the front page has a banner heading: "Battleship Florida, Heaviest In Navy, Is Launched" 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 stamps within the masthead, some small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
