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.
