Resource: 19th-Century Emoticons

I found this delightful graphic at the Dangerous Minds site; it's a brief notice published in the magazine Puck in 1881 which shows emoticons. As a big fan of the smile, of course I thought this was very charming! You might enjoy exploring the list of emoticons at Wikipedia. According to the Wikipedia article on the history of emoticons, the first use of our modern smiley can be dated to 1982. :-)
