Years in print:
Var: Reedy's Mirror, Mirror, St. Louis Mirror. Began as a gossip sheet with little reputation for believability.
The Sunday Mirror is now [Dec. 1893] practically in exclusive control of the weekly press. The Mirror differs in its make-up and character from any other western publication. It knows neither friend no foe in its columns, and is original and fearless in its style and policy, supplying, in a way never filled before, a field which ought not to be overlooked in a city of 600,000 inhabitants.
(From Old and New St. Louis by James Cox, 1894).
