Closing Time
every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end
Anne Shirley — Evelyn Nesbit
The connection between the sprightly protagonist of Anne of Green Gables and Gibson Girl Evelyn Nesbit is a purely superficial one: when Lucy Maud Montgomery was imagining the character, she cut out a picture of the model from Metropolitan Magazine (with no idea who she was) and pasted it to the wall of her bedroom as the ideal physical appearance of Anne. This is who you’re supposed to be imagining, girls.
