Here's what we looked like 100 years ago. Notice we have the eight-column grid, and illustrations instead of photographs. I don't believe the dropcaps on those stacked headlines will come back anytime soon. Most important, there's almost no local news on the front page, except for the index and three-bullet items in the first column.

Love the illustrated masthead, though - it'd be nice to see that come back. Something's lacking in the blue glass thing on the new website. And by something, I mean, of course, everything.
