Leavenworth, Kansas tornado disaster...

Item # 693446

May 10, 1876

ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, May 10, 1876

* Centennial Exposition opening day
* 1st World's Fair in United States
* Fairmount Park - Philadelphia

This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The front page has an article headed: "THE BIG SHOW" "The Centennial Opening to Be Marred by Rain" and more. (see)
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 8 pages, minor irregularity along spine, very nice condition.
