WSJ Launches Blog in Honor of 125th Anniversary

The Wall Street Journal turns 125 next year, and to honor the birthday, the paper has launched a new blog.

The vertical, creatively titled Today in WSJ History, is fairly self-explanatory. It will be a place for the paper to document how it covered stories of the past, both big and small.

Pictured on the right is the Journal’s first front page, from July 8, 1889. That’s the same year that Vincent van Gogh painted “Starry Night.” Coincidence? We think not.
