Souvenirs of the Paris Dogs Cemetery
The Paris Dogs Cemetery - The Cimetiere des Chiens has been the subject of previous posts, but in the past few days, I have been fortunate enough to acquire three vintage postcards of the cemetery and would like to share them with you. The first, above, is of the cemetery gates and was posted on April 20, 1920 - although I believe it to have been printed many years before that. I have scanned the reverse upon which is written a letter. Sadly, I don't know French, but I hope one of our experts may be able to translate? The lady with the parasol in the centre of the photograph is, presumably, taking the small boy to visit a dog grave.
