vintage photo time with guest curator

Library of Congress, Prints & Photographs Division, Detroit Publishing Company Collection, [reproduction number, e.g., LC-D4-10865]

Public domain: published pre-1923

Today I bring you a special vintage photo: here's "Sheep in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NY," taken sometime between 1900 and 1905. You will see the title is missing a mention of the collie sitting so alertly at his master's side, the better to fend off any . . . tourists? I wonder if this was taken in the Long Meadow -looks like it.

For this wonderful find I thank today's guest curator, John over at It's All Good, who has been a great blogfriend for years.
