To give you an idea of how old this photo is…President Lincoln was still a year away from taking office! “1860: A canine amateur photographer.” From Vintage Everyday!
“1890: Children of the Klondike area of Yukon Territory, Canada, sitting with their dog by a street sign.” From Vintage Everyday.
“Washington, D.C., circa 1915. ‘Miss Catherine L. Littauer. Dog show.’ Harris & Ewing Collection glass negative.” (Shorpy.)
Remember that TV commercial from back in the day (1976, the Bicentennial, yo) where the little chuck wagon came blasting out of the dog food bag? I could never understand how it got IN there in the first place.
And this one from six years earlier- notice the wagon goes RIGHT INTO the cabinet doors and vanishes. That confounded me too.
“Washington, D.C. “Dog Show, 1915. Mrs. Blanche Strebeigh Bonaparte.” Dog owner Mrs. B. (this girl’s mother) was married to Jerome Bonaparte, great-grandnephew of Napoleon. Harris & Ewing glass negative.” (Shorpy McShorpersons.)
Gonna need a step stool for THIS doggeh. Photo details and year unknown, from Live Laugh Do, a Smedley find.
“Miss Mary E. Patton. Washington Dog Show, 1915. Harris & Ewing Collection glass negative.” From Shorpy.
Clearly, as these Vintage.es photos show,
diamonds doggehs are a girl’s best friend.
