The "City of the Pauper Dead" story extracted whole from the Library of Congress on-line archive image of Page 7 of the Sunday, December 13, 1908 issue of the N.Y. Sun, is too large to fit unreduced on a standard HTML web page. If reduced to fit, the text becomes too small to read (See upper left corner of photo montage above).
As a way to overcome the problem, we have split the text into 13 close-up sections. The four photos in the montage above are split among the next 12 close-up section pages, each photo accompanying three text sections. On the last close-up section page is a link for accessing the Library of Congress on-line archive image of Page 7 of the Sunday, December 13, 1908 issue of the N.Y. Sun.
A word of caution about the accuracy of details in the story:
Many journalist then, as often has been the case in our own period, produced their reports on the run, so to speak, lacking the time and/or means (and perhaps occasionally the inclination) to double check their own impressions of what they see and their own understanding of what they have been told.
The adage "Don't believe everything you read" should be applied to this 100-years+ newspaper story just as one would apply it to a story in this morning's newspaper.
A few examples from the "City of the Pauper Dead" story suffice to illustrate why this cautionary note is offered:
