Early edition of the Hindenburg tragedy...

Item # 683946

May 07, 1937


* Hindenburg airship disaster
* Lakehurst NJ New Jersey
* Nice headline & photos for display

This is obviously a very early edition as it does not contain a photo of the Hindenburg in flames as at least 3 other Examiner editions contained, nor does it contain internal pages with photos of the zeppelin.
The two line banner headline announces: "ZEP EXPLODES IN AIR! 100 KILLED; 3 ESCAPE" which has 3 related photos. Subheads include: "Hindenburg Fiery Wreck Over Jersey" and "List of Passengers On Ill-fated Ship".
Present is all of section 1 (of 2) with 28 pages, plus pages 1-8 of section 2 which may or may not be the complete section. Minimal margin wear, good condition.
