1880 Leadville, Colorado booming...

Item # 692860

February 15, 1880

ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, Feb. 15, 1880

* Leadville, Colorado on the rise
* Silver mining boomtown

This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. Page 2 has an article headed: "Growth Of Leadville" "An Old Mining Camp and a New City" and more. (see) Text takes up just over a full column.
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 12 pages, irregular along the spine, nice condition.
