1905 Snyder, Oklahoma tornado disaster...

Item # 677890

May 11, 1905

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, May 11, 1905

* Snyder, Kiowa County, Oklahoma
* Tornado disaster with 113 deaths

The top of the front page has a three column headline: "TOWN WIPED OUT BY A TORNADO" 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, small library stamps within the masthead, irregular along the spine, generally nice.
