Neil was the household pet of actors Tippi Hedren and Noel Marshall, and Hedren's daughter Melanie Griffith, in 1971. Griffith was 19 years old in the photos.

Why is it so intriguing to peek into the past? Think about how much time you spend flipping through old family albums, vintage pictures in shops or garage sales, or - dare I say - Facebook albums of yesteryear. To me it’s clear: old photos are magic. There's some universal connective tissue between our world and the world before us, and photos are a fast way into the past. Read More
