Charming vintage drawing of a little girl giving her kitten a lecture about fighting. After giving the kitten a bit of first aid for the wound on its head and pampering it on a fancy pillow, the little girl stands on a pillow of her own to be as tall as the table. This black and white drawing is a little less sharp than I would like it to be but it’s so darn cute that hopefully someone will find a way to use it anyway.
1890 Baby’s Annual Pictures and Stories for Little People supplied almost 100 wonderful images for Reusable Art. D. Lothrop Company filed the copyright in 1889 but since they did not identify an illustrator or author, the copyright held for 120 years. How lucky are we, that these vintage images are now in the public domain?
This image is copyright free and in the public domain anywhere that extends copyrights 70 years after death or at least 120 years after publication when the original illustrator is unknown.
