1. Librarian Fact #850

    librarianfacts:

    Some librarians are often mistaken for witches. Others are not so much “mistaken” as witches as they are “recognised” as witches.

    An oldie but goodie.

We are continuing Halloween-related Caturdays this October (see last week’s creepy kitty) with this photo of a flying feline on the back of a witch’s broomstick. This postcard from 1910 is in our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection, and was originally sent to “Miss. A. Anderson” in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Happy Caturday!

Sorry, I just like witches, everyone.

We thought it would be simply purrrrfect to share some of the Library’s hair-raising Halloween-related cat images on Caturdays throughout the month of October. So here’s the first one - an 1894 print from The Picture Magazine of a witch and her black cat. It’s currently in our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection. Happy October, and happy Caturday!

The LJ tumblr loves old pictures of witches. Especially in October.
