Happy birthday to Christopher Robin Milne!
In 1950, Milne’s childhood stuffed animals, which served as the inspiration for his father A. A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh stories, paid a visit to DC Public Library’s Central Library where they were exhibited for several months, as pictured above. In 1987, the animals were given permanently to nypl. #tbt
