"Of all national assets, archives are the most precious:
they are the gift of one generation to another,
and the extent of our care of them marks the
extent of our civilization." Arthur Doughty.

❖ ❖ OCTOPUS WEEK ❖ ❖ Seattle until Sunday 26 Feb 2017

Seattle Aquarium until 26 February '17

This antique postcard with a giant Pacific Octopus has no
publisher listed, but verso includes some out-of-date information
on what was commonly called a "Devilfish" in the Pacific NW.
A highly intelligent Enteroctopus dofleini grows bigger and
lives longer with it's three hearts, than any other Octopus species.
There will be one waiting to see you this week at
the Seattle Aquarium.
