Let us take a moment to appreciate Mr. Nast’s adorable depiction of Victorian house mice, complete with their own daybeds, quilts, side table, pocket watch, and, for some reason, their very own wall-mounted telephone. And of course, Season’s Greetings, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year from the North Jersey History and Genealogy Center!
