    The Chicago Sun- Times is the oldest continuously published paper in the city of Chicago. It started out in 1844 as the Chicago Evening Journal. It was the first paper to publish the rumor, now determined false, that Catherine O'Leary's cow knocked over a lantern to start The Great Chicago Fire of 1871. In 1929 the paper was relaunched as the Chicago Daily Illustrated Times. The sign probably dates from the late 1800's. There are holes where square nails were used to hang the sign, and on the back you can see the impressions left by a large circular saw used to cut the lumber. The sign is nearly four feet long. Notice the price, 3 cents.
