EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, April 15, 1915
* St. Johns, Apache County, Arizona flood
* Lyman dam - reservoir break disaster
The front page has a banner headline: "Arizona Reservoir Breaks; Eight Persons Drowned" 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.
