Wordless Wednesday - Church Bulletin 1888
My new obsession is browsing this website, which archives entire series of magazines and journals. I have long loved magazines like Lippincott's and Munseys, but there are so, so many good things here. My latest find is The Sacred Heart Review, a church bulletin from the late 19th century (Boston and Cambridge) that had a nationwide distribution. It's amazing. It epitomizes what a church bulletin should be - it incorporates catechism lessons, saint's biographies, and so, so much more. Here is just a tiny snippet from the eight-page broadsheet style first issue. I'm ecstatic that I have almost 1,600 more issues to read!
