This weekend marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, and over the next few days the Duluth News Tribune and www.duluthnewstribune.com will be running a lot of stories on Northland ties to the wreck.
For the Attic, I’ve uploaded PDFs of the front page and “jump” page of a week’s worth of issues from April 1912.
The Titanic struck the iceberg late on the night of April 14, 1912, and sank on April 15. The News Tribune did manage to get news in its April 15 edition that the huge ship had struck an iceberg. But it was the next day’s paper – April 16 – and the ones that followed that really showed the scope of the disaster.
Click on the PDF links below to see for yourself – even if you’re not interested in the Titanic, there’s a lot of other stuff to read on these pages:
