PORTRAIT OF A FASHIONABLE WOMAN AND HER BEAUTIFUL GREYHOUND (1941)

This vintage Italian real photo postcard features a pretty and fashionable woman and her elegant greyhound. She is holding the leash tightly. The woman is wearing four flowers on her jacket. Perhaps she was at a dog show and the photo was taken after the competition. The message on this postcard was written in 1941. This postcard is in very good condition (see scans). ADDENDUM: A visitor has corrected me about the dog’s breed. The dog is a Borzoi and not a Greyhound.

MAJESTIC GREYHOUND IN BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA

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.
