The changes in Wain's cat paintings as his mental problems evolved

Louis Wain drew and painted cats to great acclaim in Victorian England. Lost his savings on bad investment plans, went crazy...

And continued to draw and paint cats.

Panzer: Sdkfz 8
Created as the towing vehicle for heavy Wehrmacht artillery pieces of the 100 - 210 mm caliber, a total of 4000 were made 1938-45. The rear end license plate seems to be missing on this example.
I have no explanation for the "T" marking except that in some units, artillery was grouped together in "batteries" which were distinguished by letters and not numbers.
