Harvard has digitized Virginia Woolf's Monk House photo album. All (most) of the crowd is pictured, and just to set the internet in historical context, there are several cat pictures.

Some of these are like the platonic ideal of author photo. The authoriest authors who ever wrote a writing.

Cat pictures are seqs. 56, 60-63 (warning: dogs), and 65, v. adorable and timely as I am reading Mrs. Dalloway at the moment and it is blowing my mind.

FYI, this is just one of our six Monk’s House albums, and they’re all digitized. A colleague of mine made this handy Bitly to get to all of them.

Monk House sounds like a subgenre of Gregorian techno.

It's like the diaries come to life. "My gosh, these were real people!"
