1892 Oil City, Pennsylvania disaster...

Item # 691355

June 14, 1892

WAVERLY FREE PRESS, Waverly, New York, June 14, 1892 

* Oil City & Titusville, Pennsylvania
* Oil Creek Disaster (1st report)

The second page of this issue contains a report on the Oil City, PA disaster of 1892 (see images) - which to-date remains one of Oil City's greatest tragedies (view here for more information).  The issue also contains other news of the day with period advertisements throughout.
This is complete in four pages, browning at the edges, a few minor edge tears, and several small (typical) binding holes in the left spine, otherwise in good condition. It is brittle and needs to be handled with care.
