1900 Galveston, Texas hurricane disaster...



Item # 684717

September 10, 1900

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Sept. 10, 1900

* The Great 1900 Galveston hurricane
* Deadliest natural disaster in U.S. history


The top of the front page has a two column headline: "APPALLING LOSS OF LIFE MAY REACH TEN THOUSAND" 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, 19 x 14 1/2 inches, small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes, generally very nice.
