This photo was taken in the early 1920's by my Great-Grandfather. They bred and trained German Shepherds for police work mostly but also worked with the dog's gentler abilities too. I believe this was taken in Hempstead on Long Island. Their kennels were located in the area of farmland which became suburban East Meadow and the landscape was more rural there, leading me to believe that this was taken in town. No idea who the child is, certainly not an immediate relative. Perhaps a distant cousin, anyone recognize the little girl? | Click image for Comments. | Home
