1901 SS Islander shipwreck....



Item # 679154

August 19, 1901

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Aug. 19, 1901

* SS Islander sinking
* Klondike gold rush era


The front page has a one column heading: "Many Lives Lost in a Steamer Wreck" (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.
