1917 "Turnip Winter" Germany famine...

Item # 682273

December 22, 1917

EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Dec. 22, 1917

* Turnip Winter - Germany famine
* Civilians hardships - World War I
* Social unrest - looting - crime

The front page has a nice banner headline: "MILLIONS STARVING IN GERMANY" with subhead. (see) Nice for display. 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 14 pages, small library stamp  and label within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
