Dog Most Like His Owner



What a pair these two make! The dog's shaggy fur is just like his owners sideburns/beard.

The photograph was taken by Samuel Frost who was a watchmaker and photographer in Kirkgate, Newark. Frost is mentioned in The Times newspaper on the 22nd of June 1860 as one of his photographs was used for evidence in an inquest into a Mill explosion in Winthorpe. This is notable because it was perhaps one of the earliest uses of a photograph as evidence in an investigation such as this.
