The Whole Dam Family

This card was sent in 1905.  Any resemblance to people you know is entirely coincidental.

Several versions of this card were printed and were used to advertise a 1905 short silent movie, called the Whole Dam Family and the Dam Dog. There does not appear to be a cat in the movie. You can watch a minute and a half of it on Youtube. I think there must have been more.


  1. Oh dear that is cute. Maybe not a card to send to grand-aunt Edna though.

  2. Hey! My family resembles that remark!

  3. Too funny! And a great reminder that our ancestors did have a sense of humor.

  4. The card is great fun! And fairly surprising to me that it dates from so long ago.
