Sepia Saturday 76: cats

Good post again this week Alan, lots for the Sepia Saturday themers to play with. Of all the possibilities liked to your post, I've chosen cats, mainly because the items I had related to the other possible themes all seemed not to be sepia enough. Also, I am a cat-person, and this postcard reminds me of when our 2 cats were newly arrived kittens, with that permanent look of surprise on their faces.

A Happy Family, real photographic vintage postcard published by Wildt and Kray, c.1930

100's more vintage postcards on my web site

  2. Despite the drought it's raining cats and dogs in the North East at the moment. I talk to dogs but there is one cat in my village that will talk to me.
    Fine card on the theme.

  8. That one at the bottom looks like a cat that used to roam our neighborhood with that same expression on his face. He was a long haired cat too.

  9. When did cats first become a photo subject? Dogs show up a lot in early postcards and photos, but cats not so much.

  10. Raining cats and dogs here too... Thanks for the reminder about permanently-surprised-looking kittens. Just had a look at some of my cat's kitten pics and he looks just the same - shame I missed the Cat theme :-) Jo
