The first issue of TIME was published 93 years ago, and a lot has changed in the decades since.
The first-ever issue of the magazine was dated Mar. 3, 1923, and it was shorter and far less colorful than the magazine readers might recognize today. Many of the names it features have been largely forgotten, while others—William Howard Taft, Mussolini, Charlie Chaplin—remain well-known.
TIME subscribers can always access that issue—and every other one—in the TIME Vault (and non-subscribers can peruse it too, until they hit their article threshold).
