Glass plate negative of female dog on rear haunches, 1887

 Item — Box: 2, item: 15
Identifier: MSS 9008 Item 15

Scope and Contents

Female dog sitting upright on her rear haunches, and it is clear that she recently delivered a litter of puppies. My guess is that this was Billy Hofer's dog and that the photo was taken outside his cabin near Cinnabar, Montana.
