I absolutely LOVE old photos - especially ones from the Victorian era. And antique photos with pugs in them - my favorites!! So imagine my delight when I came across this new book with photos of the Royal family and their pets! It is called Noble Hounds and Dear Companions - The Royal Photograph Collection by Sophie Gordon.
Queen Victorian was well known for her pugs and many of those pugs are featured in this book!
This book is a treasure trove of wonderful photos!
