1905 Russian Bloody Sunday massacres....

Item # 677803

January 24, 1905

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Jan. 24, 1905

* Bloody Sunday massacre
* St. Petersburg, Russia
* Russian revolution

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "SWORD RULES IN ST. PETERSBURG" 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 6 pages, two small library stamps within the masthead, toning along the top half vertical fold, generally nice.

wikipedia notes: Johann Otto Hoch (also known as The Bluebeard Murderer) is the most famous and last-used alias of a German-born murderer and bigamist, John Schmidt. He was found guilty of the murder of one wife but is thought to have killed more, perhaps up to 50 victims. He was hanged.
