Subject

Great Prescott, Arizona Fire 1900
Arizona Weekly Journal-Miner, 19 July 1900

Description

This edition of the Arizona Weekly Journal-Miner was published five days after the fire. It was published on Thursday, one day after the regular day of circulation on Wednesday, because the fire destroyed the newspapr's office and printing machinery. On one side of the front page is the description of the devastation caused by the fire; on the other side is an expression of town pride, bragging that no one in Prescott was calling quits and all the local businesses were vowing to rebuild. At the bottom of the page is a brief sketch of the downtown area of Prescott with a broken line enclosing the area the fire destroyed. The paper highlights both the scope of the devastation, and residents' determination call to rebuild the ruined city.
