Photography's Best Friend - 19th Century Canines

Since photography's invention in 1839, animals have been a subject. By the 1850s, with the introduction of the smaller carte-de-visite, or CDV image, it became popular custom to include a pet, especially the dog, as part of the full family photographic experience. Often appearing regal and posed in ornate surroundings, handsome studio shots were displayed with all of the other family portraits in albums made especially for preserving them.

House of Roulx now takes that preservation one step further - enlarging such vintage images to fetching fine art prints - ready for elaborate display - thus celebrating the breeds and the companionship dynamic of years gone by.
