Dapper Digital Images

A tip of the hat to a captivating catalog of eye-catching characters! Ever on the lookout for old pix to play with, I took a few minutes to drop by the New York Public Library’s Digital Gallery. I wasn’t disappointed. This treasure trove of ephemera provides visitors free and open access to over 800,000 digitized images. I grabbed the original image of the dapper fellow below, dropped it into an image-editing program, and tinkered with various overlay settings.
