Me My Dog And I: 30 Lovely Vintage Jack Russell Photographs
Between 1966 and 2008, native New Yorker Libby Hall collected over 900 photographs of dogs, circa 1850 to 1940. Generous of heart and deed, Libby donated her collection to the Bishopsgate Institute, in London, the city she’s called home since moving there with her husband in 1967.
In this gallery we’ve honed down her collection to one breed of dog: the Jack Russell. Full disclosure. I live with one. And I love the little feller. Although he’s a mixed bag of indeterminate origins – a ‘mostly Jack Russell’ – so I’ve included a few old pictures of similar breeds that might well have been dipped into the melting pot and led to Milo.
