This is a picture of O. Henry, né William Sydney Porter, born 1862 in Greenboro, North Carolina. He is the author of the short story Thimble, Thimble, which I will not bother poor Blogger by posting the whole darn thing, but will just link to.
I collect thimbles. This blog was started to share all things thimble-ish with other collectors and provide links to sellers and makers of thimbles. Just for fun.
