How great is this image? This is a print (made into a postcard) by Rachel Robinson Elmer depicting a winter twilight near the famous Washington Square Arch. It’s undated, although it’s likely from the late 1800s or early 1900s. The beautiful image is in our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection! Happy snow day!

“Great Expectations” by Charles Dickens. A terrifying encounter with an escaped convict in a graveyard on the wild Kent marshes; a summons to meet the bitter, decaying Miss Havisham and her beautiful, cold-hearted ward Estella; the sudden generosity of a mysterious benefactor – these form a series of events that change the orphaned Pip’s life forever, and he eagerly abandons his humble origins to begin a new life as a gentleman. Dickens’s haunting late novel depicts Pip’s education and development through adversity as he discovers the true nature of his ‘great expectations’.
