Item # 687827

March 21, 1872

MARYSVILLE DAILY APPEAL, California, July March 21, 1872

* Rare Old West title

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. News of the day plus a great wealth of ads.
Complete with 4 pages, light toning at the margins, a little irregular along the spine, nice condition.
