That Time in 1914 When We Dressed Up Our Pets

While we have many photos from the 1800s that show people with their favorite pets, it wasn't until a man named Harry Whittier Frees came along and in 1905 invented a new type of animal photography:  the humanization through costumes!  Many of us no doubt still do this today from time to time, but it is amazing to see how much clarity and detail is in these photos.  You can only imagine how many 'takes' he had to do to get these shots!
