PORTRAIT OF AN ADORABLE LITTLE GIRL HUGGING HER TORTOISE SHELL TABBY CAT

This vintage real photo postcard features an adorable little girl hugging her tortoise shell tabby cat. The child appears entranced by the gorgeous feline. This postcard was published by Alfred Noyer. He was a well known and acclaimed photographer. His Paris studio operated between 1910 and the 1940’s. This postcard is dated in the year, 1920. The card is color tinted and part of a series (no1352). I used an online translation app to learn the meaning of the caption at the bottom of this photo postcard. The translation is “kiss the mistress – he turns a deaf ear: have we, I ask you, such demands“. The quotation puts a spotlight on the strong independent nature of house cats. This real photo postcard is in very good condition (see scans).

PORTRAIT OF A CHAMPION: TOMMYKINS MEOWS HIS WAY TO SUCCESS

There is a story behind this vintage press photo. The year is 1930. Miss Lucille Armstrong is holding a large trophy won by her two months old kitten, named Tommykins. According to the notes on the reverse of the photograph, the kitten is an orange persian tabby. The caption reports that Tommykins “meowed his way in the innermost social circles of the cat-world by winning a first prize”. The location of the tabby’s great success was the Beresford Cat Club show in Beresford, Illinois. The Beresford Cat Club of America was organized in Chicago, Illinois in 1899. The Beresford Club held one of the first cat shows in the United States and started the first American Stud Book on Cats. The club also established the first American Cat Show rules. This photograph comes from the archives of the “Acme News Pictures Company”. This vintage press photograph measures about 5″ x 7″ and is in excellent condition (see scans).  (SOLD)
