It's hard to define.

But these people are the definition of "jaunty."

Harris & Ewing Studio

This photo was taken in front of the Harris & Ewing Studio at 1311 F Street N.W. The Dec. 20, 1916 Washington Post includes a Victrola ad which lists 11 dealers in D.C. including "Robt. C. Rogers Co., 1313 F St., N.W."

The Library of Congress has a photo of the exterior of the building showing the Rogers Co. store as well as the entrance canopy seen in the photo. Still haven't figured out who the people are.

Cairn

I have the pleasure of working with a Cairn terrier on a daily basis. She's a "blondie" though, a wheaten.

Woof

The dog looks snobby as well!

Happy dog...

Am I the only one to notice the dog is wagging his tail? The tip is the only thing in the picture which is blurred.

Warning

The dog is thinking, I better behave or she'll turn me into a fur stole and collar like my predecessor!

The hat!

Erik can you steal me her hat!

Warm Up the Time Machine

I must steal that dog!

Proto-Toto

The dog is a cairn terrier, a breed had just been admitted to the American Kennel Club in 1912. Toto in "The Wizard of Oz" was a cairn.

DVD

The gent looks like the Old Wagonmaster from "Death Valley Days."

Great style!

The clothes are fantastic! And the little pup is so darn cute.
