Feb. 21, 1957: “Powerful streams are concentrated on the fire in structure between Broome and Spring Streets,” read the published caption on a photo of a Manhattan fire. The five-story brick building “contained large quantities of baled textile remnants.” Photo: Neal Boenzi/The New York Times
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Dress and Tie," as sung from the top of a nondescript Chinatown rooftop. The congee feast that followed is not committed to video, alas.
Catherine’s crazy spider hair defies the laws of gravity.
(happy Canada day, all.)
In honor of Mother’s Day, here’s the sheet music for “Don’t Forget Your Mother,” a very popular song in 1899 (apparently). It’s currently housed at our Library For The Performing Arts, and is also the featured image on our Digital Gallery today. While we’re talking moms, need a last-minute gift? There’s always our Library shop! Happy Mother’s Day!
