Dog Days of Summer

July 31, 2013

Since we are now approaching the dog days of August, we thought we would bring you some dog-related photos and objects from the Germantown Historical Society’s very own collection.

Here is an old photo of the Boltz family from Germantown with their family dog Ben, 1890.

A close-up of Bobby, an adorable Jack Russell terrier that belonged to the family of Marriott C. Morris. Morris was a well-known philanthropist and photographer of Germantown who lived on Walnut Lane. Photographed by Marriott C. Morris, 1927.

A small toy dog made of wood covered with cotton batting. Dark gray colored head. From the 19th century.

Miniature porcelain dog with a whiteware body colored gray. Painted red collar with painted gold bells, darker ears and muzzle, curved tail. Possibly from the 19th century.
