This vintage bird image is actually a photograph. There’s not that many 120+ year old photographs that I’ve found. This one’s a bit fuzzy but isn’t it sweet? It must be so interesting to watch these birds grow up to be the tall and powerful ostrich. If you’re looking for a charming ostrich picture, this little chick might be just what you need.
This and a number of the other vintage ostrich photographs may have been taken by Annie Martin, the author of Home Life on an Ostrich Farm which was published in 1891.
