A Little Girl and her Jack Russell
I still miss my beloved Jack Russell, Bert who died last September. Sometimes I come across a Jack Russell photograph or postcard at an antiques market. This fantastic image of a small child perched on a cushion atop a garden wall with a flower and a Jack Russell was purchased recently. It cost less than £1 (approximately $1.60). Taken in the early 1900s, it is a lovely image. Having some previous experience as a picture editor, my eyes were drawn immediately to the fact the dog is, how can I put it politely, a 'little excited'. Normally, photographers of the time would blur the offending part of the photograph during printing!
