Pig Tails!

Illustration:  A Long Tailed Pig.  Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.  McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1900.

“A Long Tail’d Pig.”

A long-tail’d pig, or a short-tail’d pig,

Or a pig with e’er a tail,

A sow-pig, or a boar pig,

Or a pig with a cruly tail.

Mother Goose’s Nursery Rhymes.

McLoughlin Brothers: New York. Ca 1900.

  1. When I first saw the illustration, I thought I was looking at three mice! Even now that I know they’re supposed to be piggies, they still look at lot like mice…

  2. Boy that Pig-in-Charge has nice clothes, and the other two are merely in kerchiefs and cheap hats. I love that the one in back has it’s top hat with its lid flapping. As if he was a gentleman pig who had lost his shirt and fallen in with bad company. I can see his parents coming to bail him out and being even snobbier than their jailor. He’s the most mouse-like of the three.

      1. If only I knew who you were. But yes, sometime. Coffee date? There should be more love in the world, cliche but true. Mwah mwah.
