4670 Errant school boy facing angry teacher.

Published by Kunzli, Zurich. The earliest postmark on a used vintage card in my possession is 1952. Of the seven cards in my possession there are two variations in the Mainzer address and two in the Kunzli information. None of the USA Mainzer …

Notice the three mice lined up to watch the passing parade and the frisky calf.

4673 A kitten Chorus in the classroom

4675 Home Economics classroom with girl kittens

The teacher is cutting fabric while two kittens look on. The rest are watching the two dancing mice in the classroom window.

4680 A Day at the circus / midway

Some cats ride the merry go round, another swings the mallet in the test of strength, while others try to knock the stuffed toys off their perches. Meanwhile the bored carni looks on.

1952 postmark, Kunzli and Mainzer, printed in Switzerland.

4695 Diving & sliding into the lake

Kittens have fun in the water. Diving off the high board or sliding down the long slide. Not especially realistic given how much cats like water. The backdrop of mountains across the lake is pretty. In the real world, I think that water …

4696 Leap Frog in the school yard

The boys play leapfrog at recess while the girl kittens look on. Nice woods and mountains in the background. It would not be politically correct these days.

Postmarked 1952 Kunzli & Mainzer. Printed in Switzerland.

4697 A disciplined classroom

I think I miss the point of this image. Unlike most of these cards the kittens in the class are paying attention and on their best behavior. However, six adult cats supervising nine kittens seems like a little much. The cat at the back of …

4699 Kittens play blind mans bluff with the teacher at recess

Notice the well tended flower beds in the background. That European feel is present in most of these cards.
