TWO CUTE NINETEENTH CENTURY KITTENS: EVEN WITH NINE LIVES THESE CATS CAN’T POSSIBLY STILL BE ALIVE

CENTURY CATS_0004This cabinet card image captures two very cute kittens sitting for their portrait at A. M. Powers studio in Schenectady, New York. One wonders how many photographs Mr Powers had to take before producing this very special cabinet card. The photographer, A. M. Powers is mentioned in the book, The History of County of Schenectady. It states that he resided in Schenectady beginning 1873 and opened his photographic gallery in 1879.

  1. So man dog pics, and so few cats. I agree it must have been many tries before getting this lovely shot. One can imagine the owners were very rich to be able to afford to indulge in the luxury of a portrait for their pussies.
