SS California torpedoed... WWI German submarine...

Item # 677044

February 09, 1917

THE ASHEVILLE CITIZEN, North Carolina, February 9, 1917

* SS California sunk
* German submarine attack
* World War I tensions rise

The front page has a nice banner headline: "RUTHLESS GERMAN U-BOAT CAMPAIGN CONTINUES WITH UNABATED FEROCITY" with subheads that include: "California Remained Afloat Just None Minutes From Time Torpedo Struck Port Side Of The Steamer" and more with related illustration. (see) Nice for display.
Twelve pages, light toning and minor wear art the margins, small library label within subheads (see), some archival mending near the lower part of the spine, generally good. Should be handled with care.
