Midgets Eating Lunch

Gothamist points out the new George Grantham Bain Collection at the Library of Congress. Over 40,000 images from the good ol' days. I absolutely love any photos of NYC from back in the day, and have been really enjoying this collection.

While searching on "Central Park," I came across this image:

That's right. It's 3 midgets eating lunch, sitting on the grass. How can I be so sure? Because the picture caption is:

TITLE: Midgets eating lunch - May party - Central Park. Three midgets sitting on the grass.

Just fascinating that I didn't even go into this searching for midgets, yet somehow came upon them.

Check out the collection. It's great.
