'Peter' 1945 or 1946


The dog is named 'Peter', the names of the boy and his mother are unknown.  A lot of found snapshots include the name of a pet but not a person.  I doubt that they themselves needed a reminder of the pet's name, but this way they ensured that those of us viewing the picture years on would know.

  1. Pets come and go in a lifetime, so I can imagine writing only the pet's name on the backside of a photo, with the interesting side effect we now know more about the dog than about the humans in the picture. Mother doesn't seem to be aware a picture is taken, and the boy is having a good time (I'm not sure about the dog).

  2. I still can't understand why they didn't label the people. Kinda funny if you think about it!

  3. Peter has an almost human expression on his face. Great picture.
