Page One: Bozeman Explosion

By Beacon Staff

A natural gas explosion rocked downtown Bozeman Thursday, collapsing three buildings.

I always find it interesting to see how newspapers decide to design their front pages after a monumental event. The Chronicle decided to run photographer Sean Sperry’s vertical image the full width of the newspaper, and I can see why. I’m not familiar with downtown Bozeman, but I have to assume that he is in a plane or helicopter to get this picture, which shows great hustle on his and the newspaper’s part. Great choice and use of image.
