The Wall Street Journal's First Front Page, published July 8, 1889

The Wall Street Journal began 125 years ago as a 4-page afternoon paper sold for two cents. Since then, it has grown to cover every major financial center around the world and is published in 12 languages. Deputy Editors-in-Chief Matt Murray and Rebecca Blumenstein, and Senior Deputy Managing Editor Michael Miller discuss the legacy—and the future—of The Wall Street Journal. In honor of the anniversary, the Journal has created a new interactive site, highlighting important stories and milestones from the paper's archives.
