A festive Merry Christmas card from 1910, via the nypl:
It’s a Christmas-themed Caturday, with this 1910 postcard from our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection. The card depicts a wide-eyed, well-dressed kitty wishing the card’s recipient a merry Christmas. Oddly, the back of the card reveals that the card was sent from an “Aunt Pelara” in August of 1910. Yes, August. Well, whatever! It’s still cute, and is purrrrfect for the last Caturday before Christmas. Speaking of Christmas, just a reminder, NYPL is closed on Tuesday, Dec. 25, for the holiday. But our eBooks will still be available. Happy Caturday!
