Vintage photo of dog "Jill", owned possibly by Harry I.Theall from Millinocket, Maine

Cute vintage snapshot of a pup with a message on reverse.


"Thought you might like to see our new Jill.  Don't believe you would know her from the other as she is just as sweet and as much alike as two Beans.  "Some dog", I tell you.  Harry.  [p.s.] She grows like a weed."

Harry either had the photograph taken by Theall's Studio in Millinocket or, possibly, Harry was Harry I. Theall himself.

According to a WWI draft registration card I found online, Harry I. Theall was born 15 Sep 1887 in Boston and was living in Millinocket at the time he filled out the card, on which he stated his occupation as photographer.  He was the son of Ira and Henrietta Theall; Ira was born in St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, and Henrietta was born in Massachusetts.  Harry I. Theall died in 1935 and is buried in the same plot as his parents, in Mt. Auburn Cemetery, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Hopefully you'll get a kick out of this memento.  Thanks for stopping by!
