I love looking at old breed photos. Amazing how some breeds have changed and others remaining typical. The Bassett for example had much longer legs and I bet less joint and back problems. Another is the colouring of the Retriever. You can tell from the photo that it is a dark golden colour not the washed out creams you get now which I personally do not prefer. It is so hard to get a "golden" retriever nowadays.

Houndy, thanks so much for sharing this site with us. I've spent a happy half hour browsing the photos. Fascinating how some of the breeds have changed over the years - take for example the corded fur of the poodle, quite a different creature altogether. I'm sure most of us would find the taxidermy examples downright creepy but there you go :S of interest nonetheless! Please, if anyone knows of similar sites or books that one can purchase, would you let us know? This is precisely my cup of tea!
