December 31, 1903

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Dec. 31, 1093

* Iroquois Theatre fire - Chicago (1st report)
* Deadliest in United States history

The top of the front page has a banner headline: "GREATER AND GREATER GROWS THE ESTIMATED LOSS OF LIFE" with subhead. (see images) Nice for display. Lengthy text. This was the deadliest single-building fire in U.S. history with over 600 deaths. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 6 pages, small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
