People and animals together are the subject of this unusual photo collection, revealing a surprising range of interactions, from pet crocodiles being cuddled to MGM's talented lion Fearless Fagan being chauffeured into the studio. Here are swans who regularly warm themselves by the fire at a London social club, a bear cub climbing on a toddler's back, Walt Disney encouraging a penguin with a fish on-camera, and a young Melanie Griffith escaping a nip from her family's pet lion Neil. In this book from the Retronaut series of photo albums, Wolfgang Wild collects unexpected images that challenge conventional ideas of past times, helping us see how, for the people who lived then, it was "now"—just a different now from the one we know.
