An unexpected result of the Portland trip this past weekend: a handful of anonymous, vintage "pet & people" photos, riffled out from Ampersand's bulk bin.
This one isn't utterly anonymous: the back reads "Jean and first pets. about a year old. 1917 - Sept. 2"
Where is this lovely child now, and were pets a constant presence in his or her life? Look how gently this baby is handling those fluffy round critters (puppies, I'm thinking).
