1905 Sorento, Illinois tornado disaster...



Item # 679250

October 18, 1905

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Oct. 18, 1905

* Sorento, Illinois
* Bond County
* Tornado disaster


The top of the front page has a two column headline: "A TORNADO SMITES AN ILLINOIS VILLAGE" 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 6 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
