W. H. De Lan took on the challenge of photographing the two boys and their dog featured in this cabinet card portrait. Dogs tend to have difficulty comprehending photographer’s instructions so producing a good photograph of a dog is quite a respectable feat. The compliant dog in this photograph appears to be a Yorkshire Terrier. The boys in this image are well dressed and the seated child has a pocket watch. Research yielded little information about W. H. De Lan. One source stated that he operated his studio in Bridge End which is a village in Northumberland, England. A second source reported that he was a photographer in Bradford, a borough of West Yorkshire.
