The New York Sun

Hi everyone,

This is my first post and I hope it's in the right place. I am trying to identify the typefaces used in "The Sun" (NYC: 1835-196), the daily newspaper in which "Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus" first appeared in 1897. I am specifically looking for the body and headlines....school project here at California College of the Arts.

Here is an example a standard page, as preserved by Chronicling America:
http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83030272/1904-11-27/ed-1/seq-23.pdf

An explanatory article of the "new" Sun's typography

And the wiki article about the paper:
