Newspaper article about Close Paper Mill ruins photograph by Mr. James, 1875

Dublin Core

Description

This printed article states the following:

"Mr. James got a splendid negative for a photograph of the ruins of the Coralville mill, taken early next day after the disaster, and now has the pictures ready for delivery.

The view is directly from the South, so that the observer, looking to the North has the entire hundred feet of leveled wall before him. There are tanks 1 and 2, lifted from their places with the man-holes blown open and to the right is No. 4, from under which Smally was taken. So every feature of the ruin is brought out vividly in this excellent and highly finished picture, a copy of which should hang in every house as a souvenir of our most dreadful casualty."

Walch states in his book that this article was taken from the Iowa City Press on July 30, 1875 (Walch, p. 32).
