Do you know Palmer Cox has a special connection to the City of Woodbury? In 1889 Woodbury's own G.G. Green, ever forward-thinking, was not content with merely using the popular Brownies in his advertisements and publications but instead commissioned Cox to create a new brand of pixie for his August Flower Almanac. As a result, the Greenies were born! Having appeared in both the 1890 issue of the almanac and a special Wit and Wisdom issue, the Greenies are a wonderful time piece, once again linking Woodbury, NJ with world-renowned artistic talent. Enjoy some of the more prominent illustrations below and take note of familiar Woodbury locales drawn into some scenes! As always, click for LARGER.
