The Wall Street Journal is set to commemorate its 125th anniversary tomorrow with a slate of print and online content.

The most noticeable reminder of the paper's birthday will be a cover wrap of the first edition of the Journal, from July 8, 1889, packaged with the print edition. The vintage A1 will come with where-are-they-now annotations, filling in readers on what happened to the individuals mentioned on the cover.

Another print package, titled "The Future of Everything," will include essays from business, technology and pop culture figures. The authors range from Morgan Stanley C.E.O. James P. Gorman to pop star Taylor Swift. Facebook C.E.O. Mark Zuckerberg has also contributed a piece.

Tomorrow's edition of the paper will also feature a special Opinion section, which will include both new pieces and retrospectives from the past.
