imagine this (first in a series...?)

I found this (from BoingBoing) so unbelievably charming that I just have to share it here. And, if someone wants to question its relevance to anything, I'll defend it by saying 1., it's a perfect example of "imagining history" and 2., it reminds me of the surreal scene in Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the Shore where Nakata pulls out an umbrella in the middle of a parking lot and fish start raining from the sky.

"Rains of Fishes" by E. W. Gudger, from the November-December 1921 edition of Natural History
