1907 sinking of the SS Columbia (1880)...

Item # 678514

July 22, 1907

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, July 22, 1907

* SS Columbia (1880) sinking disaster
* Steam schooner San Pedro collision
* Off the coast of Shelter Cove, California

The front page has a nice banner headline: "ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY LIVES WERE LOST ON PORTLAND STEAMER COLUMBIA" 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 8 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, a few small binding holes and minor wear along the spine, generally very nice.
