More WCS Ephemera Online

Capture We’re pleased to report that more of our materials are now available online–specifically some fun Bronx Zoo and New York Aquarium ephemera from our Publications and Printed Ephemera collection.  Thanks to the excellent Culture in Transit Program, we now have 112 additional items up at METRO’s Digital Culture of Metropolitan New York site.  This is a fraction of this large and always growing collection, and we hope to add more in the coming years. 

Below are a few of our favorites.  Take a look and let us know which ones are yours!  And for more on the CIT pilot at the WCS Archives, check out this CIT blog post written by Mobile Digitization Specialist Caroline Catchpole.

    Thanks for posting the WCS ephemera — especially the ones during the time I visited when I was growing up — the 1950s zoo brochures and the platypus invitation!
