UNITED KINGDOM - JANUARY 01: A girl worker hanging up cat skins after they have been cleaned and dressed at a skin dressing factory off Hornsey Road, North London. The firm has received about 11,000 cat skins to dress in the past few months - and the consequent shortage of imported skins due to the war gives them a higher value than their actual worth, which, when they reach the warehouse for drying, cleaning, shaping and dyeing, is about three shillings each.
