Dedicating St. Patrick's Cathedral...

Item # 601304

May 26, 1879

NEW YORK TRIBUNE, May 26, 1879  The entire last column on the front page is taken up with fine and very detailed coverage of the dedication of the famed St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City. The top of the column is headed: "The New Cathedral" "Dedication By The Cardinal" with subheads including: "A Great Multitude Fills the Building...--Remarkable Gathering of Archbishops, Bishops, Priests..." "Blessing and Opening the Cathedral" and more.
This coverage carries over to take more than half of page 2 as well. Great to have this account in a newspaper from New York City.
Complete in 8 pages, nice condition.
