Some of the images on these pages come from old books and show the way we interacted with animals between the 1890s and 1930s (approximate dates) as well as some views of life in that less hurried age. Some of the images are fairly large. The other photos are from open air shows and museums. There are also a few recent animal photos. You are welcome to use these to illustrate your own projects or presentations. More old photos are on Flickr.
