Miss Bertha Clough and her famous cat postcard

Don't you just love cats.

Maurice Boulanger, the famed French Cat Artist, was in his hayday 100 years ago, and this old card, postmarked in Hartly Delaware on January 13, 1909 is a lovely representation of his work. He had a wonderful style of drawing cats ... brightly colored red mouths and the slanted cat eyes were trademarks of this great artist. An old postcard sent to Miss Bertha Clough of Henderson Maryland.

ADDED July 16, 2006: This old card is no longer in the collection.
