Item # 683158

April 24, 1899

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, April 24, 1899

* Newnan, Georgia
* Elijah Strickland lynching
* Alfred Cranford murder

The top of the front page has a one column heading: "A MOB OF BUTCHERS" 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. Rare as such.
Complete with 8 pages, a few small binding holes along the spine, small library stamp within the masthead, generally very nice.
