Vintage Kitten Immortalized...

This is a photograph taken of a page out of a chlidren's book originally printed in 1941, "The Little Kittens' Nursery Rhymes." The whole book features nursery rhymes and was photographed using real kittens..."made possible only by patient unfailing kindness on the part of the photographer at all times." ~ 71 years ago

The text with this page:



"I had a little pony,

His name was Dapple-Gray,

I lent him to a lady,

To ride a mile away.


She whipped him, she slashed him,

She rode hm through the mire;

I would not lend my pony now

For all the lady's hire.

I don't know where on flickr this is, I found it in elsewhere first:
