November 24, 1939. Washington, D.C. "Mexican Ambassador a canary fancier. The Mexican Embassy resembles a bird store these days now that Ambassador Senor Dr. Don Francisco Castillo Najera has gone in for the breeding of canaries in a big way. Here we see the Ambassador visiting a few of his feathered friends with his daughter, Ermita." Harris & Ewing glass negative. View full size.

Won't the lovely Ermita be surprised

when she feels the tickle of tiny feet and discovers a Giant Mayan Nosferatu Spider about to bite her throat!

That brooch!

That's a nasty looking brooch she's wearing. Is it a spider or scorpion or am I seeing it wrong?
