How could they cut off the DOG?

My first response was WHAT'S THAT UNDER HIS CHAIR? Nowadays, the animal would be featured, and the person would be an afterthought!

Pastor

I wonder if he's still around today, & what he would think of our communication capabilities today.

re: Gear

I love the dog. I wish the photographer hadn't cut him in half.

Gear

Besides the Zenith console and the turntable atop it, I also see a car radio (top shelf, with a side panel missing) and what might be a wire recorder to the padre's right. Car batteries under the table may have been a backup or may have powered a transmitter directly. And course the faithful dawg on the rug.
