LOLCats From Yesteryears: Photographs by Harry Whittier Frees

LOLcats, for those uninitiated, is an Internet meme of funny cat pictures accompanied with an amusing caption, often idiosyncratic and grammatically incorrect, as a cat would say could it speak. LOLcat is a combination of two words – LOL which means ''laughing out loud'' and cat. While the term is believed to have originated in 2006, the concept of lolcats originated much earlier. These photographs were taken by American photographer Harry Whittier Frees (1879–1953), who dressed his cats, Rags and Fluff, as well as the pets of his friends and neighbors, and posed them in human situations with props, often with captions.

''Speed is essential in securing these pictures, but very often it is impossible to be quick enough. Young animals cannot hold a pose any better than human babies, and the situation is complicated when they are called on to be precocious in situations naturally foreign to them," said the photographer.

Frees's career as a photographer of dressed animals began at a birthday party in 1906, when a paper party hat was passed around the dinner table and landed on the pet cat's head. Harry took a picture and a career was begun. He took others and sold them to a postcard printer, who clamored for more. As time went on, his props and scenarios became more and more elaborate. His animal photos were featured on post cards, calendars, books, advertising materials, and articles for "Woman's World" and "Child Life" magazines. In addition, he wrote the stories to accompany his pictures for the books and magazines.
