Josh Begley’s compilation of every cover of the New York Times since 1852 (the paper actually started publication in 1851 but there are still 50,000 pages here) in under a minute.

First news photo (Glenn Curtis’s flight from Albany to NYC, May 30, 1910); first use of 96pt type (Moon Landing, Jul 21, 1969) and the first colour photo (Oct 16, 1997).

    Thoroughly enjoying the news of the 1860s and the 1960s; two prolific and shocking decades of US history.
