1904′s Bureau of Information is today’s Visitor’s Center on Temple Square. They did try to disseminate information … to the point of leaving almost no room to write a letter on their letterhead!
I think this is the fire-hose approach. Cool printing but a bit much.

Wow. Very intricate and amazing and beautifully done, but you’d probably need a magnifying glass to read parts of it.

Could anyone using the old Palmer Method, which was all the rage in 1904, actually be able to write small enough to get in more than a few lines on one of these pages? Still, it is clear that they were keen on magnifying their calling.

I’m assuming the miniscule type is all 13 of the Articles of Faith.
The temple block, BY monument, and pre-expansion tabernacle organ are all identifiable. But what’s in the lowest oval frame?

Blowing it up (still hard to read), it looks like all the text is the thirteen Articles of Faith.

Yes, it’s the Articles of Faith. The obscure oval is Saltair.
