Vintage, photographic-like drawing of a girl holding her pet cat. The dark-haired girl is wearing a light-colored dress and together with her calico cat appears to be sitting for a portrait. This black and white drawing is an illustration from a book for children that is in the public domain.
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.
