I’m not sure what is happening here, but I like it. It is called “Child in a boot” and it was created by Clay, Cosack and Co in 1871.

“Curious Tom. Washington, D.C., Dec. 23. Curiosity killed the cat but Tom, favorite pet at the Washington pound, seems willing to take a chance as he inspects the cameraman’s little black box. Stray cats and dogs at the pound were given a Christmas party today by the poundmaster, Frank B. Marks.” Photo by Harris & Ewing.
