The Boston Globe was founded in 1872 by a joint venture of six businessmen, including Eben Jordan, who hired Gen. Charles H. Taylor as business manager in 1873 when the paper ran into financial trouble. Over the next 15 years Taylor became Jordan's partner and the paper's president and publisher.

Circulation grew from 8,000 in the late 1870s to 30,000 by 1880, 100,000 by 1886 and 300,000 by the mid 1890s. The circulation today is 473,000 weekdays and 750,000 on Sunday.

Originally a morning paper, the Globe added an afternoon edition in 1878. The Boston Evening Globe stopped publication in 1979.

Taylor's three sons, Charles Jr., John I. and William O., Harvard graduates all, joined the newspaper in the 1890s. Upon the general's death in 1921, William O. Taylor became publisher.

When he died in 1955, his son, William Davis Taylor, took over, making cousins John Ingalls Taylor and Charles H. Taylor III integral parts of his corporate team. In May 1958 the Globe, needing new printing machinery, left Washington Street, once referred to as Boston's "Newspaper Row."

Davis Taylor named Laurence Winship editor in 1955, the first time in the newspaper's history that the publisher, a Taylor, did not also carry that title. Taylor also brought Winship's son Thomas back from his post as Washington correspondent to serve as the paper's first Metro editor. Under Thomas Winship, who succeeded his father in 1965, the Globe won its first and another 10 Pulitzer Prizes.

In 1978, Davis Taylor named his son William O. Taylor publisher, a post he relinquished in September 1997 to his second cousin, Benjamin B. Taylor, great-grandson of the first publisher.

In 1993, the Taylor family sold the Globe to the New York Times Co. Earlier that year, Matthew V. Storin was named editor. Under his leadership the paper won Pulitzers in three consecutive years beginning in 1995.

If you had asked me to predict which brand would debut a new logo on its Fall 2017 runway, I wouldn't have guessed Fendi. The brand already has both an iconic logo print and logo hardware that longchamp outlet it has barely capitalized on during the recent resurgence of that look in the accessories market, but for Fall 2017, those things sit alongside the Fendi brand markers we all know and love from the 90s and mulberry replica handbags early 2000s. The new logo hardware is featured prominently on a slew of new flap bags, and it's an open circle with an F resting on its side at the bottom, as though it fell that way. The new replica designer handbags logo's best use by far is as the center of a flower made of leather petals on micro bags and bag charms, several of which made it to the runway alongside the larger bags. Fendi's Zucca logo fabric, which has long been mostly missing from the brand's bags, also figured prominently in several pieces, and now is the perfect time for it to be returning to favor among the label's bag designers.
