THE GREAT DROWNING ACCIDENT ON THE HUDSON AT ALBANY. JUNE 25TH, WHEN SIX YOUNG PEOPLE LOST THEIR LIVES.
[Albany? 1889]. Illustrated folio broadside, 6-1/2" x 12." Old horizontal fold [narrowly browned] reinforced on blank verso. Portraits of four victims, surrounding a sketch of "The Tug and Boat after the Pleasure Party was Thrown in the River." Good+ or so.
The New York Times story on June 26, 1889, led with this headline: "RUN DOWN BY A TUG.; SIX PERSONS DROWNED IN THE HUDSON LAST NIGHT." The Wheeling Register's June 27 story explained that the boating party, rowing on the Hudson, was run down by a tug. The broadside depicts Maggie Horner, Maud Horner, John J. Mattimore, and Edward Cote, all from the Albany area. The tug is depicted leaving the scene of the crime -- a broken boat, drowning passengers in its wake.
