Mid-Century Cat

Most of the photos in my collection are from the first two decades of the twentieth century, which is the era of history that I am most fascinated by. But, once in awhile, an image is so true to it’s time, and so aesthetically of the moment, that I can’t resist. This is one such photograph.

Goats on the wallpaper! An oh-so modern cabinet and on-trend bowl. The best part? A cat that matches, and, I do think she knows it.

  1. Black and white kitties are so pretty. And that goat wallpaper is fantastic! Thank you for sharing.

  2. That’s one big cat that clearly thinks it is the best thing in the picture. I missed the goats on the wallpaper. Shame on me.

  3. I love the old photos you post, Terry. Like Louise stated in the comments on the post about the woman in the carriage, the photos make me wonder about the people & what they were doing. Maybe 100 years from now someone will come across an old photo of my boys playing outside or me holding my dog or hen, and take a moment to think of us.

  4. Hmmm…1950s perhaps? Looks like a home decor I grew up with!
