120-Year-Old Cats - Cute as Ever

In proof that people have been photographing their cats since as long as we've had access to the ability to take pictures, a photographer named Mathieu Stern found a 120-year-old time capsule containing... cat pictures!

A photo from 1900 of two cats in a yard, developed using cyanotype methods (the earliest film development technology), so it is tinged slightly blue

It's worth noting that back then, taking just one photo would have been SUPER EXPENSIVE, so this is a much bigger deal than the 5 bajillion pics of Gertie I have on my phone.
