1905 launching of the USS Kansas battleship...



Item # 679123

August 12, 1905

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Aug. 12, 1905

* USS Kansas (BB-21) battleship
* United States Navy warship


The top of the front page has a two column headline: "LARGEST WAR VESSEL EVER BUILT IN EAST" 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 8 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
