 As family photography became increasingly popular in the second half of the nineteenth century, the inclusion of the family dog in the picture became virtually de rigueur. As this irresistible gallery of canines testifies, dogs are not just man's best friends, they are also his finest photographic models. Libby Hall has been collecting photographs of dogs since the 1960s and from her enormous archive she has chosen a winning line-up. Some are hilarious, some are moving, some are heart-breaking. These touching photographs offer insights into Victorian and Edwardian social mores. They open up new realms of fantasy: why were these photos taken, where and when were they taken and what happened next? But mostly these frozen moments capture the blissfully required passions of people and their dogs.
