Classic cats - 50 cat photos from The Capital-Journal archives
Tucked in the corner just off of The Capital-Journal newsroom is a room with 3 rows of shelves struggling to contain all of the folders of printed photos that have been filed away during the course of the newspaper's 137 year history. Situated between folders labeled "Castor Bean Growers Inc" and "CATARACTS Eye Surgery" are two folders simply called "CATS." Here are 50 photos selected from those folders which we have dubbed "classic cats."
The oldest photo is dated for June 17, 1951, just a month before the major flood. The most recent was taken in April of 1997.
Seven hundred and ninety-five folders further down the shelf are multiple dog related folders. A selection of photos from those folders can be found in our "historic hounds" slideshow here.
