A boy and a dog

Hi Fella

Hi Fella

This real photo postcard from the Rudd collection is an AZO brand with the triangles all pointing up, so that dates it to between 1904-1918. The boy and his dog pose in the yard or field. The dog looks like a retriever of some kind. In the background there appears to be a picnic taking place. It’s a lovely, pastoral image that makes me think of easier, slower times, warm sunshine and the smell of outdoors – sun baked grasses, trees, wet earth and flowers…

    Adorable photo, I love how the boy put his little hand on the dog’s back, like he really cares for this dog, lovely!

    I have had two flat-coat retrievers which are black and that certainly looks very much like one. A fine snapshot.
