Smilies in 1881: Who knew?

More yummy goodness today from Ronni Bennett’s Time Goes By. I couldn’t pass this up — emoticons from an 1881 issue of Puck magazine. I should have known typographers were far too clever not to have employed them long before the digital age.

Ronni found this gem over at Retronaut, another place you’ll want to visit. For anyone familiar with Memory Lane, this place is a trip!
