This cabinet card is an excellent portrait of a majestic looking greyhound (possible whippet) . The dog sits on a bench with as much regal bearing as any king sits on a throne. The photographer of this image is Abner L. Blanks. He is known to have operated his studio in Birmingham, Alabama,  between 1888 and 1890, but may have also been in business there during other years.
