1913 Long Beach, California pier disaster...

Item # 678506

May 24, 1913

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, May 24, 1913

* Long Beach, California
* Municipal Auditorium
* Pier collapse disaster

The front page has a nice banner headline: "SCORES KILLED OR HURT IN LONG BEACH DISASTER" with subheads. (see) Nice for display. 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 18 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
