Sepia Saturday-Vintage Photo of Herding Dogs



I'm participating in the Sepia Saturday blog hop hosted by the adorable Ruckus the Eskie.  This hop is right up my alley as many vintage photos of dogs are Sepia tinted.  Below is a 1930s photograph of a women and her two dogs, one is a German Shepherd and doesn't the white collie dog resemble a larger version of our blog hop host?  Many people collect vintage photos of dogs, I hope to start, and one source is the online site Deco Dog which sells vintage dog collectables of all times.  The picture below is priced at thirty six dollars, a little steep for me but its a nice photo.

  1. The dog-human bond is timeless. Btw I love the sweater set the woman is wearing. And $36 does seem pricey for one photo, although it is nice.

  5. What a cool photo! There's something so serene about sepia. Yes, $36 is rather a lot for a photo though :)

  7. Lovely photo. And we had fun searching through the Deco Dog site for wire-haired fox terriers!

  8. Oh Retro Rover, feel free to post anything sepia related on Saturday. Pets or no pets. I knew this blog hop would be perfect for you! Right down your alley. Also, that dog is very close to me! Perhaps a sammy? LOVE IT!

    Sorry for being so late on my Sepia Saturday rounds. I just came back from a trip to Yosemite and had no internet there!

  9. Really lovely image. Those were two immensely good looking dogs. Agreed, that's way to steep, IMO, for one vintage photo from that era of a scene that, while very nice, is not especially rare or unique. eBay and etsy, as well as flea markets and second hand shops (and antique stores), can often offer up similar vintage photos for a fraction of that price.
