1902 fire on Spindletop.... Beaumont oil fields...
Item # 678474
September 12, 1902
THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Sept. 12, 1902
* Fire on Spindletop gushers
* Beaumont, Texas oil fields
The top of the front page has a three column headline: "TEXAS OIL FIELD SWEPT BY FIRE" 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, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
