About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Pibble

Looks to me like a pit bull puppy, or pibble, as I call them. Too bad they fell from grace; they can be very sweet family dogs.

Doggerel

It's probably a Boston terrier (or Boston Bull, as they were known back then) or possibly a Pit Bull puppy. Pit Bulls were one of America's most popular breeds back in the first third of the 20th century. Both breeds had their ears routinely cropped, so that's why I am thinking a puppy.

Whatever the breed, the picture is a classic!

Woof

Anyone familiar with the breed of dog here? Just a mixed terrier breed of some sort? It almost looks a bit Frenchie to me.

Cute kid, cute coat

Coats very similar to that are fashionable again now. I have a lovely red one myself. I don't think I'm nearly that adorable in mine though. At any rate, it's nice to see a non-hideous fashion come back in!

Can you say Trouble?

That is quite a mischevious smile on her face, I bet she got up to lots of shenanigans when her parents weren't looking.

@Tut I believe that is some sort of harness the dog is in and not a collar.

Doggone

I'll bet it wouldn't take much for that pup to slip out of his collar.

And her little dog, too

Such a sweet little girl and her dog....I love this picture.. it is adorable!

Could it get any better?

Man, if this doesn't take the Shorpy Adorable Picture of the Week (Month ...Year ...[insert favorite time period]) prize, my Cute-O-Meter is seriously out of whack.
