About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Naptime for Nipper: 1914

1914. "Puppy in crib next to 'mother' in costume using toy sewing machine." (The kittens are traveling this week.) Photo by Harry W. Frees. View full size.

 

Almost as cute as the cats

However, this photo proves that dogs aren't as smart as cats: the doggy mom is using the sewing machine backwards.

Who Let the Dogs In?

Please bring back the kittens.

Good baby

Can sleep through anything.

Satisfied?

All you posters griping about the kittens, I hope you're happy! You have to admit, though -- that little puppy in the crib IS adorable!

Y'all really are trying to make me crazy with this stuff. Go ahead: admit it.
