Item # 678337

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, May 14, 1901
* re. the discovery of oil in Beaumont, Texas
* Beginning of the Great Spindletop oil well era
Page 4 has a one column heading: "Beaumont's Boom" with subhead. (see) The great Spindletop oil gusher was discovered just a few months earlier. 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 8 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
