It’s the last Caturday of 2012! In its honor, we thought we’d share this adorable 1909 postcard from our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection. It was originally sent from “Susie” to “Miss Anna Anderson” in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn on Dec. 30, 1909. So happy new year, happy Caturday, and see you all you feline fans in 2013!
Today’s flashback Friday is brought to you by The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts’ Music Division: the 1895 sheet music to New Year’s Bells composed by Alf Hampton. Whether you sing it, say it or shout it - we’d like to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year’s Eve and best wishes for 2012!
