Pony ride

I have heard about the photographers who traveled around with their pony and for a fee would take a picture of your child riding the pony. Sometimes those photographers were con artists, but due to the prevalence of this type of photo I’d say for the most part they were on the up and up. The customer had to place a lot of trust in the photographer because they paid up front and then waited for the photo to arrive in the mail. Do you think this could be Marylyn Talbot from yesterday?

    I agree – it looks a lot like Marylyn Talbot – she’s lost a little bit of the chubby baby face – she’s growing up…

    It could be. Those photographers always had a pony..what I would call a pinto pony. I have one photo of a boy on a similar steed. I never knew the history of the pony photographers..thanks for the info:)
