Friday’s Faces From the Past – HP and the cat

For today’s Friday’s Faces From the Past post, I would like to post this picture of my first cousin twice removed, Henry Peacock “HP” McCormack.

HP and the cat

HP and the cat [1]

I don’t have a date for the picture, but “HP” was born in 1891 so make your date guesses from that point. I was told by his daughter that her father wasn’t too fond of cats and she was surprised that he would have taken a picture with a cat. One thing about the picture is that you can see what looks like cloth markings. I know that at one point of photography that pictures were made with cloth or something like that. The texture is very hard to “remove”.

Thanks for stopping by!
