TWO ENGLISH BOYS AND THEIR YORKSHIRE TERRIER

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.
