“Poe on the High Bridge,” Bernard Jacob Rosenmeyer, 1930

Today is Edgar Allan Poe’s birthday.

Rosenmeyer’s lithograph below depicts him on one of his characteristic solitary walks; this one is on the High Bridge between Manhattan and the Bronx.  For a little interesting background on it, see this entry at the Ephemeral New York website.
