1900 Scofield Mine disaster...



Item # 682547

May 02, 1900

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, May 2, 1900

* Scofield, Carbon County, Utah mining disaster
* Pleasant Valley Coal Company mine explosion


The top of the front page has a one column heading: "APPALLING DISASTER" 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 8 pages, 19 x 14 1/2 inches, small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes, generally very nice.
