Portrait Format


This Gallery is composed of as many historic Cat Show images as we have been able to source to date, some showing the exhibits, some showing the admirers or spectators. Some of the prints show other animals, as they are in many cases, simply news reports on Agricultural or Pastoral Society Shows in graphic form. As we source good copies which are suitable for reproduction, we will make as many available to those fanciers who love to have a touch of history on their walls!

The gallery also contains “curiosity” images which are cat themed, some from political and or social commentary cartoons. Some of the items in our cat history collection, date back to the 17th and 18th centuries, and we hope to be able to make all these available in time. The images are not in any particular dated order, but we have also categorized them by subject matter, so you may go to the SHOP page and select a “Product Category” to refine your search.

Relevant Product Category LINKS are also included on every product page, directly beneath the item description and in the right hand side-bar. The advantage of using these links, is that the system will sort and combine both the relevant PORTRAIT and LANDSCAPE images for you onto ONE page to view together.
