TUCUMCARI SUN, New Mexico. Aug. 23, 1912  

* Rare Southwest publication

A quite uncommon title from this small New Mexico town in Eastern New Mexico, great to have from the year New Mexico became a state.
The front page has a photo of the county court house and jail.
Tucumcari, located on the old Route 66, has an interesting history and has been mentioned often in popular culture (Rain Man, NCIS, Designing Women, Adam-12, For a Few Dollars More, Truman Capote's In Cold Blood, etc.). The town was also the on-site location for many scenes of the show 'Rawhide' staring Clint Eastwood.
Eight pages, light toning, nice condition.
