1905 USS Bennington explosion disaster...

Item # 679120

July 21, 1905

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, July 21, 1905

* USS Bennington (PG-4)
* Boiler explosion disaster
* United States Navy gunboat

The front page has a great banner headline: "TERRIBLE DISASTER ON BOARD THE BENNINGTON" 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 6 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
