1890s Cats

Trying to write and my cat just will not leave me alone, so I'm posting some pictures of 1890s cats. Naturally, people have always loved cats. In 1893, Harry S. Miller wrote "The Cat Came Back." The world's first cat video was made in 1894, as well as the boxing cat video.

  1. I have a print of the 1898 Rogues' Gallery. It is very old, it hung on my grandmother's wall when my dad was a boy around 1916. His mother always told him she got it from an old neighbor when her belongings were sold after her death around 1910. Is there any way to find out just how old it is and the value?
