vintage photo time

yet again i thank you, o bulk bin at ampersand
I wish you could hold this photo in your own hand. It's actually less than half this size, and the scan didn't do its lovely silvery blacks and grays justice, nor how crisp and jewellike it is.
Besides, the subject actually involves a cat among chickens! Granted, a cat being held by a very sensible looking youth, but look at the cat's ears! You cannot tell me that cat is not awash in temptation. Ohhhh. . . so much temptation.
Thank you for your continued good wishes - Bac' is doing a lot better, much better indeed, but now I am just waiting to see if she is truly improving. I have been in varying stages of worry since last Thursday so that's the main reason you haven't seen me much.

Oh, I hope her health stays good. It's such a worry when they can't tell us what's wrong.

Best wishes for Bac's continued recovery. It is so worrisome when they are ill.

Danielle said...

Yup, if my human bean had chickens, I'd have that expresion 24/7! ;)

I hope Bac gets better soon!

Do you have any idea when this photo was taken? I'm thinking maybe 1920s or '30s, but I'm not sure.

I'm glad to hear Bac is doing better!

Hi everyone, thank you so much for your nice wishes for Bac' - it really helps. Laura, I wonder the same thing about this image: I think 20s, I guess due to the clothing.
