1918 Vernon Castle airplane crash death...
Item # 682069
February 15, 1918
EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Feb. 15, 1918
* Vernon Castle killed
* Ballroom dancer
* Royal Flying Corps
* British airplane crash
The front page has a six column heading: "VERNON CASTLE IS KILLED IN FALL" 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 16 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, a little wear and small hole where a address label was removed which affects the year in the dateline, generally very nice.
