MARYSVILLE WEEKLY APPEAL, California, May 28, 1875

* Rare Old West publication

 In the days of the California Gold Rush, Marysville was a stopping point for riverboats from Sacramento and San Francisco that carried miners on their way to the digging grounds. A sign on the roadside as one enters Marysville carries the slogan: "Gateway to The Gold Fields." At that time it was one of the largest cities in California, named after one of the survivors of the Donner Party tragedy.
The front page has a small article: "A Tourists' Meeting in Yosemite" and "Politics in San Diego" among a wealth of other news items from the Old West. Many ads as well.
Included is the single sheet "Supplement" issue.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, large folio size, nice condition. News agent's stamp in the masthead. Folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
