Libby Hall Dog Collection

Libby Hall Dog CollectionAdministrative/Biographical History:  Between 1966 and 2008, Libby Hall collected old photographs of dogs, amassing many thousands to assemble what was possibly the largest number of canine pictures ever gathered by any single person. The collection – circa 1850 to 1940 - was later edited down to its present size of approximately 900* photographs, comprised of the dog photographs used in her five books (published by Bloomsbury) and miscellaneous extras, mostly pertaining to the First World War.

Scope and Content: c900 images of dogs and their owners, including photographs, postcards, albums and other photographic items and artefacts, c1850-c1945.

Quantity: 9 Boxes
