George B. Post, New York
Photograph of World Building Drawing
New York, 1889
World Papers, Box 10
From The World, Its History & Its New Home: “Mr. Joseph Pulitzer purchased The World, May 10, 1883. Its old plant, at 32 Park Row, then amply sufficient, was long since outgrown. Now, after seven and one-half years of unparalleled journalistic growth, The World enters its permanent home, the Pulitzer Building, the most magnificent and most thoroughly equipped newspaper edifice in existence.” This photograph of architect George B. Posts’s drawing of the façade was placed in the cornerstone box at the ceremony on October 10, 1889.
Gift of Joseph Pulitzer, Jr.
