New to My Collection: A Boy’s Best Friend

The subject of this carte de visite by J.H. Crittenden of Fall River, Massachusetts, is an earnest boy who sits cross-legged on the floor of the photographer’s studio. His left arm is draped across the shoulders of a big dog with his head turned in a submissive manner towards his young master. A collar is just visible about the dog’s neck.

This portrait is now available on Pinterest, Tumbler, and Flickr:
