About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Breed guesses?

I almost want to think these are Airedale pups...just a hint of facial furnishings, ear set and leg hair makes me lean towards that...would love to see Mom!

Little Rascals

This looks just like a scene from the 1930 Our Gang comedy, "Pups is Pups," in which Wheezer runs all over the neighborhood in an attempt to retrieve his runaway puppies. They're trained to come to the sound of the bell he carries, but there seem to be bell sounds all over town that distract them. Just when all seems lost and Wheezer starts to cry, the puppies come running and smother him with kisses.

Lefty Instinct

Only lefty kept looking at the camera. Everyone else just had to look at the squirrel.
