Adorable Cats And Dogs Acting Like Humans 100 Years Ago

Apparently, The LOLcat is not a new phenomenon ;)

These amazingly sharp photographs of kittens and pups are a century old, but their humor and appeal is timeless, as the Internet has proven again and again. Photographer Harry Whittier Frees, born in 1879, began a career in cute-animal photography in 1906, building out a small studio to produce postcards, calendars, and children's books. Here's a collection of Frees's work from June 1914.

The True Story Behind Those Vintage Baby Animal Photos

Harry Frees is the photographer responsible for these legitimate old time-y portraits of kittens and puppies that you've probably seen somewhere on the internet. He began dressing animals in tiny human costumes all the way back in 1905. You can imagine how hard it must have been to take a clear photo of hyper kittens with a camera back then! You can read more about his story over here.
