The world has changed in almost every way imaginable in the 190 years since The Philadelphia Inquirer — then known as The Pennsylvania Inquirer — first published on June 1, 1829.
To help commemorate the milestone of our 190th anniversary, we compiled historic front pages from our archives — 1829 to 2019 — that capture moments of local importance, of national and international significance, and of our Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalism.
From then to now
Despite changes in the news industry and in our newsroom, The Philadelphia Inquirer remains focused on its core mission: ambitious, engaging, and useful journalism that makes a difference in our communities.
Here’s a look at the many ways our newsroom and our coverage are evolving to deliver Indispensable Journalism to the Philadelphia region.
