Oct. 15, 1910: I pulled up an Oct. 15 issue of the paper and immediately noticed the new headline font. The Times was being published at its auxiliary plant in what is now Chinatown but had to buy all new cases of type. Notice that an artist re-created the Page 1 nameplate and simplified the Part II nameplate.


In 1913, The Times will again alter the nameplate to show the destruction of the old building and add the new building.
