1910 Primero, Colorado coal mine disaster...

Item # 703397

February 02, 1910

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Feb. 2, 1910

* Primero coal mine mining explosion disaster
* Las Animas County, Colorado ghost town
* Browder - Drakesboro, Kentucky mine explosion

The top of the front page has a four column headline: "114 DEAD IN TWO MINE EXPLOSIONS" with subheads. (see images) 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 8 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, some small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
