Not only a very early San Diego newspaper (pop. was just 2300), but the front page has nearly 2 1/2 columns taken up with fine & detailed reporting on the great Chicago Fire.
Top of a column as: "THE CHICAGO FIRE" "Full Details--The Beginning of the Fire--Description by an Eye-Witness--Suffering and Death--Terrible Scenes..." and more.
Four pages, some older archival mends near margins, generally nice condition.
