1898 Shawneetown, Illinois flood disaster...
Item # 680665
April 04, 1898
THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, April 4, 1898
* Shawneetown, Illinois flooding disaster
* Gallatin County - Ohio River
The top of the front page has a one column heading: "HUNDREDS DROWNED" with subheads. (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 4 pages, 23 x 19 1/2 inches, a few small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
