Anonymous asked: The Ernestine Rose who was a librarian in Harlem in the 1920's was a cool woman, but unfortunately not the Ernestine Rose you have pictured. The daguerreotype is of a freethinker who died when the librarian was 12 (I included some links, but the comment box won't allow it - a google search of the name with "atheist" will get you to the freethinker; a search of the name with "nypl" and "harlem" will get you to the librarian (fewer images exist of her).)
Thank you! I just updated the image. You can check it out here.
