1950s Siamese Cat — 2 Comments

  1. The cat is so adorable! A great pix. I will have to share the old family cat pix I have. One is from the mid-60’s, the others from the mid 70’s.

    On the picture itself. I have studied family photographs a bit for family history purposes (I’m LDS aka Mormon… Mormons love genealogy.) Older color pictures taken by a professional photographer have historical been touched up with a bit of paint of some sort. I can see my mum and dads portraits from about 1956. Both photos have been touched up with paint. I don’t believe they ever touched up black and white/sepia photographs. This one doesn’t look to be touched up to me. The clarity is quite good. Look at the woman. You can see her skin and some of the details of the cat. I used to get a photography magazine when I was a kid (I love to learn about most anything) and I seem to recall that Kodak improved film quality sometime in the mid 1940’s. There is a photograph taken by who knows who of my mother and her close friend when mom was 13 sitting at their school desk. This would of been 1946 and the non-touched up picture was of a very high quality. So… (call me mister windbag) I think the pix, based on quality, could be anywhere from 1945-1955? Wait, there’s more…

    The woman does seem to be an easy going american and she looks to he someone of some means. The thing that makes me think it’s the 1950’s is that during WWII people didn’t smile with their whole beings like she is. This was also an expense that would be considered frivolous during wartime, right? I think it’s posed and I think, based on her countenance, dress and hairstyle between 1950-1956.

    That was fun.
