Sit! Stay! Good Dog!

Last week we shared two photos of popes that were in a Carte de Visite album, which we called the 19th century Facebook. Just like Facebook, this album had an amazing pet picture, which we couldn't resist sharing this week:

PH 23/25AL

One of the best parts of working in the archives is getting to see what has changed and what has stayed the same. It's somehow reassuring to know that people were just as pet-obsessed 150 years ago! If they had the technology, their cats and dogs would have been all over the Internet.
