Item # 681508
March 16, 1915
EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, March 16, 1915
* USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) launching
* United States Navy battleship
The front page has a four column heading: "MIGHTIEST WARSHIP IN WORLD IS LAUNCHED FOR UNCLE SAM'S NAVY" 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. Rare as such.
Complete with 12 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
